Parties to a divorce must deal with many different issues including the reason for the divorce, custody of the children, visitation for the non-custodial parent, child support, and property issues such as division of assets and debts. Marital property includes not only real estate, bank accounts, and stock accounts, but also such assets as retirement and pension plans, and ownership of assets in business entities. Sometimes one party does not know all of the marital assets, or whether some assets may be hidden. Sometimes there is a dispute about the value of an asset, such as a closely held business. Some issues, such as the amount of child support to be paid, are somewhat regulated by law. Others, such as property division, are based in Georgia on the principal of "equitable division" and are decided based upon what would be fair in light of all the circumstances.
Attorneys Rowen & Klonoski have extensive experience handling products liability cases in Georgia.
Division of assets and debts can become problematic when there is a long term marriage where the parties' earning capacities are not equal, or when there is a long term marriage where one spouse has taken most of the responsibility for raising the children while the other spouse was employed outside of the home. It is important to remember that what a judge or jury considers an "equitable" division of property and debt is not always the same as an equal division.
All of these issues must be handled at a time that is highly emotional for everyone involved. Having a good, experienced lawyer to assist you at this time is crucial, as the decisions that you make or that are made on your behalf will affect you for many years into the future.
