Excluded Property

Some property is not included in the marital estate. When we present a proposal to the judge for the equitable division of marital property, inheritances and any gifts you may have received will not be included, unless they were placed into a joint bank account.

Equitable, but Not Equal

There is no absolute rule for 50-50 property division in Georgia. Division of marital property is not equal, but equitable. When we assist someone with property division, we have to enumerate all the assets that were acquired during the life of the marriage. These assets must be given a value. Assets may include:

These and other property are divided fairly, but not equally.

Your Contributions Are Included

Even if you were not the breadwinner, you may have made a contribution to the marriage by taking care of the children or entertaining business guests. The judge will factor in these contributions when making a determination regarding property division.
