Marital Versus Separate Property

Georgia courts must adhere to the legal doctrine of equitable distribution when dividing a couple’s marital property during a divorce. This means it is likely that any assets obtained by either spouse during the course of their marriage would be considered marital property subject to equitable distribution upon divorce or separation.

Any debts acquired while the two parties were married would also fall under equitable distribution laws. It is important to understand that the equitable distribution of assets does not mean a 50/50 split. The actual division of the marital property would depend on several elements, including the current economic circumstances and financial prospects of both parties.

Assets that would be considered separate property include those acquired before marriage and inheritances, when those have been kept as separate property; property that is acquired after the two parties have separated; and any property outlined in a marital agreement.

Common Holdings at Issue in High Asset Divorce Cases

Identifying and measuring the value of all divisible assets in the event of a high asset divorce can be made easier with the help of a skilled Milton attorney. Common types of assets which must be divided in high net-worth divorce cases include:

  • Stocks;
  • Business holdings;
  • Vacation homes;
  • Securities;
  • Trusts;
  • Retirement accounts; and
  • Investment portfolios.

A lawyer in Milton is able to consult with accountants, certified financial planners, and other qualified specialists to ensure all high-value assets are adequately considered in the final divorce settlement.
