At Abbott & Abbott in Marietta and Canton, Georgia, our lawyers represent you — not your spouse. We know how important it is for you to receive a fair and equitable share in the court's property division determination. A fair distribution does not necessarily mean an equal division of assets and debts, however. Make sure you have a lawyer who will protect your interests through all settlement negotiations.
- In Georgia, bad conduct can affect property division. If your spouse is guilty of bad conduct or if you have been accused of bad conduct, you need a lawyer who will aggressively present the facts of your case. Domestic violence, adultery, cruel treatment, intoxication and other issues can affect a property settlement.
- Property division can offset other issues in the divorce settlement. For example, additional property in a settlement could mean less (or no) alimony (spousal support). Make sure you have a settlement that works for you.
- You need to consider the tax consequences of a divorce property settlement. Talk to your attorney about getting the proper resources to address these issues.
- Has some property been hidden? If you suspect a spouse of having hidden assets that should be considered in the property settlement, tell your attorney. Especially in high-asset divorces, it is important to ensure that all assets are disclosed.
- If your ex-spouse fails to live up to the settlement agreement, your lawyer can talk to you about a divorce contempt action.
The decisions you make with regard to division of marital property will have an effect on you and your family for many years to come. Our divorce attorneys want you to have the resources you need and deserve for the next phase of your life.
