Protecting Your Property

A divorce not only terminates the legal union between two individuals, it also puts an end to the sharing of most marital property. Division of property can be an extremely difficult issue because assets often become commingled during the marriage, blurring the line between separate and marital property. Money may become commingled even when married couples keep separate bank accounts or a spouse receives an individual inheritance.

In addition, Tennessee is an equitable division state in which the court divides property based on the factors of fairness and equity, rather than simply splitting assets down the middle. The court considers a range of factors when dividing property such as the length of the marriage, conduct of the parties, employment, health, children and future sources of income.

Items that are divided by the court include:

  • Retirement funds (401(k)s/pension)
  • Real estate
  • Business interests
  • Inheritances/trusts
  • Bank accounts
  • Investments

You need a knowledgeable divorce attorney to demonstrate to the judge why your property rightfully belongs to you. Our lawyers can fight on your behalf to ensure that you keep property that is yours and you get your rightful share of marital property.

Resolving Disputes Through Negotiation

Our lawyers can help you negotiate a marital dissolution agreement that will protect your property rights and ensure that disagreements between the parties are resolved fairly and efficiently.
