Property Division Lawyers in Atlanta

How Property Is Divided in Georgia Divorces

When two people divorce in the state of Georgia, the property acquired during the marriage is “marital property” subject to “equitable division.” This does not necessarily mean that property will be divided equally. It is divided based upon what is “fair” under all the circumstances and is open for negotiation. Marital property can include pensions, retirement accounts, businesses, real estate, and virtually anything else acquired during the marriage.

At Berry Family Law Group, we understand that property division is often one of the most important aspects of divorce, especially for couples that have accumulated significant assets. Our Atlanta family law attorneys are here to answer your questions and fight for your right to fair division. You owe it yourself to start your new life on a solid foundation. We have more than 30 years of experience handling a variety of family law issues, giving us the knowledge, resources, and skill to assist you every step of the way.

Get in touch with our firm at (404) 205-8942 to discuss your unique situation with one of our experienced family lawyers.

How Is Fair Distribution of Property Decided?

When ruling on property division in Georgia, the court will look at a variety of factors, including the specific marital and separate property involved.

When determining how to divide property in a fair and equitable manner, the court will typically examine each individual spouse’s:

  • Assets
  • Income
  • Financial status
  • Earning ability
  • Conduct during the marriage
  • Wrongful conduct
  • Contribution to asset waste
  • Potential future needs
  • Retirement planning
  • Debts

While property division can be extremely contentious, you are not required to go to court in order to resolve this aspect of your divorce. Our Atlanta family law attorneys strive to help you find an agreeable solution through negotiation and settlement, as this is typically a far less time-consuming, costly, and stressful route. However, we realize that settlement is not always possible. If you and your spouse are unable to agree on a fair distribution of marital property, we are prepared to advocate for you in court. Our team has extensive litigation experience and we use our relationships with our opponents, judges, and others to your advantage.
