Cumming Property Division Lawyer
Protecting Your Property Rights During Divorce
The property decisions made during divorce will define your post-divorce financial security. The attorney you hire to represent you through this process will have a major impact on the outcome. Do you want someone who has only read about divorce law in a book? Or someone who has actual experience and a record of results? At The Epps Law Group, our Cumming property division lawyer has been representing clients during divorce for over 20 years. We understand the important property and parental rights at stake. Our goal is to protect your rights and interest throughout the process so you can move forward to a brighter future.
What Properties Are Divided During Divorce?
During divorce all marital properties will be divided between the spouses. Separate properties remain separate. This makes the initial classification of assets as marital or separate extremely important.
We begin by identifying all properties held by each spouse. Then we trace those assets to determine if they were acquired during the marriage, or if initially separate properties were commingled in any way.
The next step is to accurately value each marital asset. The process used to do this depends on the asset involved. We have a network of financial experts we call upon to assist us with more complicated properties. This approach allows us to move toward a property division plan with certainty.
How Is Property Divided During Divorce?
In Georgia, marital property is divided based on the principle of equitable distribution. This does not mean assets are divided 50-50, or that you get a one-half interest in all marital property. Instead, the courts divide property based on what is most “fair.” This determination involves the evaluation of many factors and the courts have great discretion.
The best way to protect your financial interests during this process is to work with a skilled divorce lawyer – someone who has experience handling complex divorce and someone who knows his way around the courtroom.
