Q: How does Georgia law work in spilttingmartial assets and debts when one is working hard for the family and other is not
My spouse is abusive, he abandoned family for many months in the past, does not contribute towards family. Free ride with mortgage, insurance and all expenses. Recently got a job but has been paying well for his dates with call girls. How does law work in my case? How assets and liabilities are split during divorce?
A: Typically speaking, marital assets are those things that were acquired during the course of the marriage. You should consult with an attorney who can review the facts of your case in detail and help you with the proper course of action to address it.
