What Is Equitable Division?
You might have heard that Georgia is one of the equitable division states. What does this mean? Equitable division is just a fancy way of saying fair. This creates a significant gray area in many divorce cases, because the law does not require property to be divided equally. It only requires property to be divided fairly — and what’s fair? Fair is in the eye of the beholder.
The first step we take to help our clients obtain fair property division settlements is to take stock of the marital estate. We identify assets as marital property or separate property (sheltered from division) and ensure a proper value is given to all the marital assets. Only then can we go about the process of negotiating or litigating property division. As strategic negotiators and strong fighters, we are prepared to get you the best possible property division arrangement.
Complex Property Division Experience
While we provide divorce representation for people from all walks of life, we do have a great deal of experience in cases involving complex property division matters. If you or your spouse owns a business or professional practice, or your marital estate involves extensive or complicated property holdings, we can help.
Burns Law Group, PC, will work diligently to protect your rights and assets at all stages of the legal process.
