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 or mediation.

Mr. Payne was a godsend! I recently relocated to Georgia from California where I had been struggling to procure a divorce for quite some time. Upon my first telephone consultation with Mr. Payne, he clearly explained the process that needed to take place, an approximate timeline and the expense involved. He provided every aspect as laid out with the utmost professionalism and courtesy as well as finalizing my divorce ahead of schedule and under budget. I couldn't have asked for him to be any more considerate in guiding me through an emotionally difficult process. Thank you Mr. Payne!!

When finding myself in a life changing situation, I wanted a lawyer with good morals and values to represent me. I also wanted to find someone who could represent me without becoming a number in a large law firm. In choosing Mr. Payne I felt I received the time and attention required to move forward in my circumstances with positive results. He and his staff were both professional, knowledgeable, thorough and caring which meant a lot to me while moving through a difficult time. I was continually involved and kept updated throughout the whole legal process.
