When two people in Georgia are married, their financial lives are inevitably intertwined. If they subsequently divorce, all of the marital assets that belong to both spouses must be divided in a way that the court deems equitable. Although a court will do its best to divide property in a manner that it deems fair, there is a lot that could go wrong, and it is crucial for a spouse to have legal representation during this time.
The attorneys at our firm help to ensure that our clients’ property division rights are asserted during divorce proceedings. If you are worried about your spouse being awarded a disproportionate amount of the assets, we may be able to assist you in the pursuit of your fair share of the marital property.
There are many different factors that can influence a judge’s decision about property division. For example, Georgia is a state where bad conduct during a marriage can have an impact on how property is divided. An agreement about alimony may also influence how a judge decides to divide the marital property. Regardless of the value of the assets at stake, we can explain the tax implications of certain property division scenarios.

We’ll work hard to achieve a fair settlement even when your estranged spouse is not playing fair by hiding assets. We are also ready to help you file contempt actions if your ex-spouse fails to honor a settlement agreement.
