Marital & Personal Property Division under Georgia Law

Georgia operates under the “equitable distribution” rule which means that the property will be divided in what the court deems to be a fair distribution. Fair does not automatically translate into “equal” distribution. The court will look at a number of factors in determining the monetary award that each party will receive.

These factors include such considerations as the contributions (both monetary and non-monetary) that each spouse made to the marriage, the duration of the marriage, the financial condition of the spouses, the question of alimony, the ages and health conditions of the spouses, who will be awarded the family home, and any other relevant factor.

Marital and personal property includes everything that was acquired during the marriage that adds up to your wealth, including all assets such as:

  • Your home
  • Your car
  • Furniture
  • Tools
  • Businesses
  • Other real estate
  • Bank accounts
  • Investments
  • Retirement plans
  • Pensions
  • Jewelry
  • Anything else you acquired during the marriage as spouses

It also includes the debts accumulated during the marriage. Even if one of the spouses never brought in any income while married, that spouse still has property rights under the law.
