Distribution of Marital Assets/Debts
Experienced Divorce Attorney in Gainesville
In healthy marriages, spouses work together to make sure the bills are paid and that their net worth grows. It’s not necessary that both have full-time jobs; spouses who work in the home can significantly contribute to the financial success of a marriage. Unfortunately, when a marriage ends, the difficult task begins of dividing up what both spouses have spent years accumulating. Many people assume that the assets and debts of a marriage are always divided “50/50”. That’s not true in Georgia. Only in “community property” states do spouses have an undivided one-half interest in the assets and the debts. With the CLC attorneys you can count on us to provide you with all of your rights and assist you throughout these settlements and distributions.
Divorce Law Services
In Georgia, judges seek to divide the marital property in a way that is “fair and equitable” considering the circumstances of the marriage. In order to fairly divide up the property, our judges here frequently consider the length of the marriage, the age and health of each spouse, the contribution of each spouse to the marriage, and the conduct of each spouse and the causes of the separation, along with many other factors and elements of the marriage. If you have worked hard to accumulate the assets of your marriage, don’t let a judge give away your fair share. You must demonstrate to the judge why your wishes must be granted. To most effectively establish your case, you will need an attorney to address all of the various factors that the judge will consider regarding your assets.
