What's Considered Marital Property?Marital property in its simplest definition is any property acquired jointly by both spouses during the marriage. Any property owned previous to the marriage, acquired by inheritance, or purchased individually during the marriage is considered separate property.
Who Gets the House in a Divorce in Georgia?In Georgia, any property that is considered marital property will be split between the spouses. Any individually owned (or separate) property will generally not be split.
Is Georgia a 50 50 State When It Comes to Divorce?Georgia is considered an equitable distribution state. This means that in a divorce, you are not guaranteed to get 50% of marital property. Instead, the property will be split in an equitable (meaning far) manner. Oftentimes the equitable distribution will end up in a 50/50 split, unless there is a particular reason to give one spouse a larger share.
Is Georgia a Community Property State?Georgia does not recognize community property. A community property state would consider any property purchased by either spouse during the marriage is actually property of both spouses. This is not the case in Georgia. If you purchase property individually even while you are married, that property is owned by you alone.
