Dividing Property In Tennessee

Tennessee is an equitable distribution state, which means that marital property must be divided in a way that is fair and equitable – but not necessarily equal. Judges have significant latitude in determining an equitable division of property. As such, you will need a strong advocate both in court and outside of court to ensure that your rights are protected. What each person or family values will differ. We will aggressively fight to ensure that what matters to you is protected.

Seeking Fair Alimony Orders

If alimony is likely to be an issue, you need strong legal counsel, whether you hope to receive alimony or expect to pay it. Tennessee courts consider several factors when determining whether alimony should be awarded and how much should be awarded, including, but not limited to:

  • the length of the marriage
  • Each spouse's separate or marital property;
  • The custody arrangement between the parents, and whether the spouse seeking support has primary custody of any children;
  • The standard of living the couple sustained while married;
  • Each spouse's financial resources, including earning capacity, retirement, or profit-sharing benefits and the value of any separate or marital property the spouse owns and/or is awarded;
  • Each spouse's contributions during the marriage;
  • The age, education and/or training, health, skills and finances of each spouse each spouse's occupation as well as job skills and employability options/outlook for the spouse seeking alimony;
  • The tax consequences of certain property settlements;
  • The conduct of the parties during the marriage, and
  • Any other factors that the court deems just and/or equitable in making a distribution.

Our attorneys will explain your options and how alimony may be determined in your case, and will aggressively pursue a favorable outcome on your behalf.
