Georgia Complex Divorce Attorney

Our law firm has extensive experience handling all aspects of complex and high asset divorce matters, including:

  • Alimony : If one spouse's assets are considerably larger, whether they are marital or nonmarital, this can have an effect on the amount and duration of alimony. We can help you calculate assets and support payments correctly, taking into account these factors when presenting to the court a complete argument for a support recommendation.
  • Property division : The earning capacity of both parties as well as what is considered marital property will be factored into how an equitable division of the assets is determined. We can also help you understand the tax implications when transferring assets.

We routinely consult with CPAs, when advisable, to find ways to transfer assets properly. We also work with them to explore ways to transfer assets so that they are nontaxable, thus creating an advantageous situation for both parties that can foster more creative, harmonious divorce agreements.

  • Debt service: In this economy, this is an increasingly important issue. Whether your mortgage is seriously behind, you have incurred large amounts of credit card debt, or there are other debt issues, we can help you allocate who will be responsible for what portion of these debts.

In a high asset divorce, every asset and every aspect of the marriage must be considered carefully. For instance, the court will analyze the spending habits of each party when determining property division and may consider working hours when assessing and determining child custody. We will help you prepare for these issues.

G. Cleveland Payne III also recognizes the value of using experts for financial planning, tax issues, and other matters that can affect a high asset divorce. We have a wide network of consultants, financial planners, CPAs and other professionals we consult who can help us find options that meet the needs of our clients, and can be used for the purposes of negotiation, mediation, and litigation.
