Georgia Property Division Law

Under Georgia law, all property acquired during the marriage is shared marital property except for property received by individual gift or inheritance. Each spouse is entitled to an equitable share of marital property regardless of which party holds title to the property.

"Equitable" does not always mean equal, although it is often 50/50. Equitable means that the judge involved in your divorce case will attempt to divide your marital assets and debt in a way that is fair to both sides. For this reason, it is critical that you have a strong advocate on your side — someone who can skillfully explain to the judge your situation and your rights to important marital assets.
