A divorce will almost inevitably involve dividing up property. When it comes time to settle the division of a couple's property during a divorce, the parties often focus on who will take possession of high value items such as homes, cars, and jewelry. They may squabble over how financial accounts should be handled and whether certain items of property are marital or separate.
Dividing up martial property pursuant to a Georgia divorce can be a difficult process. Individuals may struggle to say goodbye to items they own with their soon-to-be exes due to sentimental connections or because of anger over losing out at benefiting from those items.
Like most of the other states, Georgia is what is called an equitable division state when it comes to splitting property, and debts, between spouses who are divorcing or going through a formal separation process.
