Georgia law regarding separate property is extremely complex and somewhat unsettled. Just proving that an asset was the separate property of one party does not necessarily preclude it from later becoming marital property. Under certain circumstances, a property that once was separate in nature can become marital by the actions of the parties. For example, merely adding the other spouses name to a deed may cause a piece of real estate to lose its status as separate property and make it marital. Similarly, comingling separate property and marital property may have a similar effect.
