The first question of property division is whether the property is personal or marital property. Generally speaking, marital property is property that was accumulated during your marriage.
Bad conduct of either spouse may affect the equitable division of property under Georgia law. It is important to have an attorney who will aggressively and effectively present your side of the story, whether it involves allegations of:
- Domestic violence
- Cruel treatment
- Other kinds of bad conduct that may affect a property settlement
Further, the way that property is divided can affect other aspects of your divorce settlement. For example, if you get more property than your spouse, you might not get alimony. You may also experience the brunt of the tax consequences.
It is important to consider what makes the most sense for you. A skilled family law attorney can help you to determine what constitutes a fair and equitable division of marital property.
Division of Property in a Military Divorce
When military personnel divorce, Georgia law is applicable to the divorce itself. However, a state divorce order does not carry as much weight when it comes to military benefits paid by the Department of Defense and Treasury (DDT).
There is a separate set of rules applicable to the division of military benefits. If you or your spouse is in the military, the importance of retaining an attorney experienced in handling the divorces of military personnel cannot be stressed enough. Our divorce attorneys will employ a military benefits expert for complex cases.
