Property Division Archives

Property division basics in Georgia

Dividing up property can be a significant concern for many divorcing couples. The property division process is designed to help ensure a fair division of property so that the divorcing spouses can have as positive a financial outlook and future as possible following the divorce process.

Enforcing a divorce decree when your ex refuses to follow it

After divorce, you may run into a common situation where your ex does not follow the terms of the divorce decree. The divorce decree or custody order is a legally binding court order, and failure to follow it is a violation. The party violating the order may be subject to both criminal and civil penalties. However, it is important to remember that a contempt action is a mechanism that applies pressure on your ex to follow the order, and is not meant to be a method of punishment.
