Georgia law provides that each spouse is entitled to a fair share of marital property acquired during the marriage. Importantly, the division is equitable or fair, not necessarily equal. Marital property is property acquired during the marriage. Separate property, on the other hand, is property that was acquired prior to marriage and it is not subject to equitable division. These principles also apply to division of marital debts. Because there is no set formula to divide marital property, it is important to have a lawyer who can help you develop the appropriate facts for a judge or jury to consider when deciding your case.
