Your Rights to A Fair Property Division in Tennessee
Tennessee law entitles each spouse to an equal distribution (50 percent) of all marital property. Marital property includes all assets that you and/or your spouse accumulated throughout your marriage. Calculating the total value of your marital estate is more complicated and time-consuming depending on the length of your marriage, how you and your spouse earned income and how you used your assets. Our Nashville property division attorney takes aggressive legal action to ensure that you receive the marital assets you deserve. Marital property includes all of your current assets except:
Real property owned by one spouse before the marriage (this does not include equity earned after the marriage)
Income earned before the marriage
Jewelry and furniture owned before you exchanged vows
Assets or property assigned to one spouse at any time by bequest, devise or inheritance
Awards a spouse receives from a civil lawsuit or settlement from a personal injury or as the victim of a crime
Business equity earned before your wedding
Uncovering Hidden Assets so You Receive a Full and Equitable Distribution from Your Tennessee Divorce Settlement
As spouses begin to sense that their marriage may soon be ending, they often begin to hide assets to avoid having to pay their spouse what they are rightfully due in the divorce. Our Nashville property division attorney is highly-skilled at uncovering assets that savvy spouses have attempted to hide in anticipation of a divorce. We go back into financial records to find any suspicious financial behavior that suggests that there are assets that are not being disclosed. This is most commonly an issue when a spouse either owns a business or is the primary breadwinner for the family.
