A family law dispute is uniquely personal in a way that few other legal issues are. For yourself and your loved ones, it is critical to advocate for the most desirable outcomes.

Guidance In Divorce And Property Division

Even after you set aside the emotional and relationship consequences associated with ending a marriage, you are still left with many practical decisions to make about money, property and other assets. The decisions you make now will likely financially impact you and your children for years to come. Therefore, it is critical to work with an experienced attorney who will ensure that you receive a fair and realistic divorce settlement.

Property division in Georgia uses an “equitable distribution” model. This means that nearly all assets acquired during the marriage will be considered marital property and, therefore, must be divided equitably. Decisions to make include how to divide:

  • Money in bank accounts and investments
  • Retirement accounts and savings
  • The marital residence
  • Home goods and furnishings
  • Shared vehicles
  • Joint debts

Each type of asset comes with its own considerations regarding taxes, value appreciation and depreciation. I will take the time to discuss these with you before deciding on priorities in negotiation or litigation. I can then help you prioritize the assets that are most important to you and your children.
