Separate vs. Marital Property in Georgia
There are two types of property owned by married couples: separate and marital. Separate property is any assets that either spouse acquired prior to the marriage. Keep in mind, however, that separate property could become marital property if your spouse makes any investment into the property or becomes a co-owner, for example.
Marital property consists of any assets that were acquired during the marriage. During a divorce, all marital property will be equitably divided, which means all assets will be distributed fairly – not necessarily equally. To ensure that your interests are protected, it is important that you discuss your situation and assets with an attorney before filing for divorce in Georgia.
Assets Acquired During a Marriage
Marital assets may include the following:
- Real estate (including the family home and rental properties)
- Retirement and pension plans
- Businesses and professional practices
- Items purchased
Property attained during the marriage that is not considered marital property includes any gifts given to one spouse or property inherited by one spouse.
