Protecting Your Assets When A Marriage Ends

A complicated and sometimes contentious issue in the divorce process is dividing property, assets and debts. At the Mindy Law LLC, we understand how some things have sentimental value to you and will advocate tirelessly to seek a fair distribution of property.

How Property Is Divided In A Divorce

In Georgia, there are two types of property in a divorce: the property you acquire as a married couple, known as marital property, and the assets you may have had before the marriage, known as separate property. The courts typically divide the marital property by considering certain factors, including:

  • Finances of each spouse
  • Future needs of each spouse
  • Separate property
  • Evidence of wasting assets or other misconduct
  • Behavior of spouses during the divorce process
  • Who is at fault for divorce

Our lawyer can help analyze the worth of complex marital assets with preparation for each court hearing or settlement meeting, striving to seek your goals.
