Georgia’s Property Division Laws
Divorce laws regarding property division vary from state to state. In Georgia, the principle of equitable distribution applies, which means that marital property should be divided fairly but not necessarily equally. Marital property typically includes assets acquired during the marriage, such as real estate, vehicles, investments, retirement accounts and personal belongings. It is essential to have a knowledgeable divorce attorney by your side to navigate Georgia’s complex property division statutes and ensure that all relevant assets are identified, valued and distributed appropriately.
What Property Is Subject To Division In A Georgia Divorce?
They can include anything from:
- The family home
- Kitchen tools/utensils
- Family cars
- Debts (anything from credit card debt to student loans)
- Bank accounts
- Investment accounts
- Retirement accounts
- Any business that accumulated value throughout the marriage
These are only a few examples of the assets that could be subject to property division. If you have any additional questions, call attorney Carol Baskin at 770-679-3568.
Who Usually Ends Up Getting The House After Divorce?
It can depend a lot on the circumstances. In divorces involving children, the parent who has the most custody time with the kids usually gets the house if they can demonstrate how remaining in the home is within the children’s best interests.
There can be a lot of nuances and variances when it comes to these matters. Speak with lawyer Carol Baskin to learn more about navigating your situation.
Are Pets Considered Marital Property In Georgia?
While they may be living, breathing beings, pets are technically still considered property in Georgia. If one spouse purchased the pet before the marriage, it isn’t considered marital property. If it was purchased during the marriage, who gets to keep the pet can depend on many factors. For instance, a judge may determine that the spouse who keeps the pet is the one who was the primary caretaker and provider.
