Jackson County Lawyer for Dividing Marital Debt and Assets

Other than child custody and support, the division of property is the most important — and often most contentious — issue in a divorce. The outcome of the asset and debt division process will affect your life and the lives of your children for years to come, so it is important that you work with an attorney who is very experienced with Georgia law on the subject.

I am attorney John Terry Brown, founder of the Brown Law Office, LLC, in Commerce, Georgia. I have practiced law at my firm since 1975 and have focused primarily on divorce and family law since 1992. In that time, I have helped clients with large and complex marital estate as well as clients with modest amounts of property. You can be sure that I will devote my full effort and attention to your case and seek to achieve a fair property settlement, whether through negotiation or in court.

Seeking a Fair Distribution of Assets and Debts

As an experienced property division attorney in Commerce, I understand how to locate various types of marital assets and have them fairly valued. I frequently enlist the help of real estate appraisers, accountants and business valuation experts to assist in this process. I advocate for fair and equitable settlements that account for all types of property and debt, including:

  • Equity in the family home
  • Responsibility for the mortgage
  • Retirement accounts such as 401(k) accounts, pensions and other retirement funds
  • Vehicles
  • Rental properties and real estate
  • Family businesses and the value of appreciation and business goodwill
  • Credit card debt

There are many factors that affect how much you receive in a property settlement. There are also certain types of property that remain yours exclusively, such as inheritance that you received when a loved one passed away. When you meet with me at the Brown Law Office, LLC, we will talk about your family's unique features and create a plan for achieving a positive outcome.
