At the law office of Ronald E. Dobelstein, in Alpharetta, Georgia, Mr. Dobelstein uses his years of experience to help protect our clients' interests in matters of property division. With his extensive knowledge and personal attention, he provides high-quality services that achieve favorable results.
Georgia law recognizes no-fault divorce. This means that there does not necessarily have to be wrongdoing on the part of a spouse in order for a divorce to be granted. However, evidence of fault or marital misconduct can be introduced for several reasons. It may cause a court to order primary child custody for one parent or may increase or decrease an alimony award.
Ron Dobelstein will explain that he Courts have significant discretion in dividing assets. He will be sure that you understand how the law applies to your situation, and help you obtain the optimal distribution. Some assets may not be marital assets, and not subject to division. For example, the inheritance that you received and never comingled is a non-marital asset, as generally is your pre-marriage retirement. He will assist you to determine which asset may be divided and which will not.
Fault may also be considered in the equitable distribution of assets. Georgia law requires equitable distribution of assets. While equitable is often 50/50, it does not necessarily mean equal — just fair. If one spouse has wronged the other, fair division often means awarding a greater portion of the property to the other spouse.
To help protect our clients' interests, we gather as much information as possible about the property involved and the marriage. Then, with the client's involvement, we take a course of action to achieve the most desirable outcome based on the history of your marriage, the assets obtained during the marriage, the separate assets each party may have, the levels of fault and the ability of each party to support themselves after a divorce. You are involved in every step of the process, and will be fully advised of all scenarios. You will have input into all decisions made in the handling of your case, and will be consulted for procedures and processes.CONTACT A ROSWELL MARITAL PROPERTY ATTORNEY
