GA is an equitable distribution state, not a community property state, which means that while marital property will be distributed equitably, that does not necessarily mean equally. In order to be entitled to a share of the commercial buildings, you would have to show that marital assets were used in the purchase of the buildings, which can include labor and work efforts during the course of the marriage to pay for the buildings. If you can prove that the buildings were acquired during the marriage, then the legal presumption is that the buildings should be equitably divided as marital property. Additionally, if you can show that marital funds from your accounts was used to pay for the buildings, this too would entitle you to an equitable share of the buildings. If you have such proof then you should demand one of the buildings or the cash equivalent of 1/2 of all marital funds put into the buildings. If he refuses, then you can settle everything else and leave that matter up to the courts to decide upon weighing the evidence of marital support for those properties.
