Georgia is an “equitable division state,” meaning that all assets and liabilities acquired or incurred during the marriage are fairly and equitably divided between the parties. Typically, assets and liabilities which existed prior to the marriage are not subject to equitable division except under certain circumstances. The division of property is often very straightforward; however, it can also be complicated, particularly in high-income, large-asset divorces. Levine Smith Snider & Wilson attorneys have many years of experience handling matters that require:
- Specialized asset discovery
