While Georgia law may provide guidance, the parties to the divorce itself should take steps to ensure a smooth division of the family business.

Addressing unique cryptocurrency problems related to divorce

A couple getting a divorce in Georgia often has to divide marital assets that include joint financial or investment accounts and the home that was shared during the marriage. Even something like jointly accumulated debt is fairly easy to split since it's not too difficult to document it. But when marital assets include virtual currency known as cryptocurrency, the process of divvying everything up can quickly become complex thanks to unpredictable values and other unique factors.

Although fewer couples have been obtaining divorces during the past two decades, gray divorces continue to escalate.
