How Is Property Divided In A Divorce In Georgia?
Only marital property is subject to the equitable division of property in a divorce. Marital property includes anything acquired during the marriage, such as a familial home or debts accrued. Generally, the property one acquired before marriage, inherited or received from third parties as a gift is not considered marital. The judge or jury in your divorce case will determine what real and personal property is marital. While nonmarital property is not considered in property division cases, it may be taken into account when making other decisions, such as determining alimony.
In Georgia divorce proceedings, marital property must be divided equitably. Equitable means what is fair. There are many factors that the court may consider in determining what is appropriate, including how much each spouse contributed to obtaining the property, the length of the marriage and a variety of other factors. Because the judge plays such a critical role when dividing property, it is beneficial to have a lawyer by your side who can effectively make your case.
