Working Hard To Ensure Fair Division Of Your Assets And Debts
Property division is often one of the most contentious parts of a divorce. But at The Manely Firm, P.C., we believe in taking a commonsense approach to these disputes. We guide and counsel our clients through the divorce process, protecting their interests by helping them make smart decisions about property division.
Our divorce attorneys use years of experience to achieve this, even in the most complex and high-asset situations. We handle division of a wide range of marital property, including the marital home, vacation properties, family-owned businesses, pensions and investments.
It is not always easy to predict exactly how a judge will divide marital property. However, our divorce lawyers’ in-depth knowledge of the local courts as well as our skillful negotiation strategies can help you work toward achieving your goals.
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. When you have substantial assets on the line, this concept of equitable division can seem particularly alarming. 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.
