How is marital property divided in Georgia?

The rules regarding property division in the state of Georgia are significantly different than those in "community property" states such as California and Idaho. While these states require couples to divide marital property as evenly as possible, in Georgia the standard is not so much equality as it is fairness. There is no set calculator or formula used by the state in this process.

Whether by independent agreement with your spouse or the decree of a family law judge or jury, the property you and your spouse have acquired together over the course of your marriage must be distributed fairly in a divorce, but that does not mean it will necessarily be split evenly down the middle.
