The 4 Core Areas of Divorce

  1. Child Custody

    Child custody defines the relationship between both divorcing parents and their minor children. There are two major types of custody – physical custody and legal custody.

  • Asset Division

    There are two key concepts for asset division: 1) defining what exactly is (and isn’t) marital; and, 2) noting Georgia does not require an equal division of property.
