Guiding You Through The Property Division Phase Of Your Divorce

Under Georgia's equitable distribution approach to property issues in divorce, the objective is not so much to achieve a strictly equal division as it is to divide assets and liabilities fairly between the divorcing spouses.

We Provide The Information And Legal Resources You Need

At the Teiger Law Center, P.C., we have nearly 30 years of experience handling the resolution of property division problems and provide comprehensive advice and advocacy to protect your financial security. Whether the assets are real estate, bank accounts, stocks and bonds, retirement accounts, current income, military retirement benefits, disability benefits, art, antiques or collectibles, we will analyze the facts of the case top to bottom in providing counsel prior to litigation and proving your case at trial.

Our objective is to expand your options for reaching a positive result through careful attention to factors affecting the determination of what will be an equitable division of marital assets and of fairly determining the value of the assets to be divided. By working together we will formulate sound strategies for negotiation and mediation, and strong evidence for litigation and appeals.

Attorney Tracy Teiger's background in estate planning and business law adds depth to his counsel on property issues that arise in a Georgia divorce. If family business holdings, blended-family situations or asset valuation disputes are likely to complicate your divorce, an attorney experienced with these issues can guide you through the process — so that you understand, truly understand, what is going on — while protecting your interests.

The first steps are to help you define and prioritize your property division goals while working on the disclosure and valuation issues that need to be resolved before serious discussions can begin. Has each side fully disclosed personal income, assets and debts? Are there any assets that should not be characterized as marital property, such as assets acquired prior to the marriage, or wealth acquired by inheritance during it, that are subject to division? Are the parties likely to disagree about the composition or value of the marital estate?

By Working Together, We Can Protect Your Interests And Advance Your Goals
