High Asset Divorce Archives

Factors Georgia courts consider when assessing alimony requests

For better or worse, money is at the root of all or most of the disputes that arise during a divorce. This can be especially true when the financial stakes are higher than normal. For instance, if you and your soon-to-be ex accumulated significant assets prior to or during marriage, it is likely that many of your discussions will revolve around financial settlements.

What is a forensic accountant and why do I need one?

For some people in Georgia, dividing the financial and tangible possessions from the marriage during a divorce may be fairly simple. If you have complex assets, though, the process of identifying them all in the discovery phase may be a challenge. Forbes suggests that locating and valuating marital assets may be best accomplished by hiring a forensic accountant, a person who has been trained in the identification and valuation of assets.

What can you learn about hidden assets from a 1040 form?

Dissolving your marriage in Georgia is a legal matter that may be as stressful financially as ending the relationship has been on your emotions. As you and your spouse go through the process of discovery, you will both need to provide all of your financial documents so the assets and liabilities can be divided equitably. If you have some concerns that your spouse is not providing a full account of these, you may want to hire a financial professional, but there is some information that should be easily accessible to you.

Who gets the credit card rewards in the divorce?

The process of dividing everything up during a divorce may seem complex if you and your spouse have a variety of assets such as tangible items, real estate and retirement accounts. Hiding financial information is illegal, and failing to disclose something could lead to conflict and litigation. When attempting to identify all shared property, Nasdaq suggests that you may also need to list your credit card rewards as marital assets.
