What is the RS NUMBER FOR RETURN OF ENGAGEMENT RING FOR THE State of ***** *****. I'm still paying for ring
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Hello. Your previous expert has opted out and I have opted in. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.

By "RS," I assume you mean what is Georgia law on engagement rings upon cancellation of marriage. Georgia's statutory code does not deal with this issue. However, Georgia's case law doctrine states that engagement rings are conditional gifts, which means that they are not "final" until/unless marriage takes place. As such, until/unless marriage occurs, the ring goes back to the giver in what is known as a trover action. See GA § 44-12-171.

However, this is not written in stone. Many courts in GA will also consider fault. This means is the groom had an affair and this is why the marriage was broken off, then the court may let the female hold on to the ring anyhow, out of equity.

I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of TOP THREE FACES/STARS and then SUBMIT, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating.
