The financial outlook you and your spouse shared may change dramatically after your divorce in Georgia. The judge will attempt to make the division of assets and debt fair based the individual income and circumstances of you and your spouse, but the final decree may still result in a situation that is financially challenging. Having good credit may be essential to getting your life reinstated. We at The Siemon Law Firm often provide legal advice about the effects of property division after divorce.
Any joint credit cards or accounts should be canceled as soon as possible. You will still both be responsible for the shared debt, so it is important to prevent your spouse from increasing the amount that will be split between you.
