Nashville Property Division Lawyers

Working to Resolve Property & Real Estate Division

Is your estate complex or a high-asset divorce? Regardless of your situation, you must ensure your asset and property rights are protected throughout the process. You need a Nashville/Middle Tennessee divorce attorney who understands property division matters and how to provide effective counsel. 

The Law Office of Martin Sir & Associates has been serving clients for more than four decades and can guide you through this challenging time.

Tennessee is a state that practices equitable division when apportioning the amount of property each spouse receives following a divorce. 

This does not necessarily mean a 50/50 split, but in most cases, the division of the marital estate, outside of special circumstances, provides each party the opportunity to be awarded one-half, so long as it is equitable.

Commonly Asked Questions

What is property division in a divorce?

Property division in a divorce refers to the process of dividing assets and debts between spouses. It includes determining who gets what property, how much each party is entitled to, and how to fairly distribute marital assets.

How does property division work in Tennessee?

In Tennessee, property division is based on the principle of equitable distribution. This means that marital property is divided fairly, but not necessarily equally, between spouses. The court considers various factors such as the length of the marriage, each spouse's financial contributions, and the value of the assets.

What is considered marital property?

Marital property includes all assets and debts acquired during the marriage, regardless of who holds the title. This can include real estate, vehicles, bank accounts, retirement accounts, and even debts. However, certain assets may be classified as separate property if they were acquired before the marriage or through inheritance or gift.

Can I protect my separate property during property division?

Yes, you can protect your separate property during property division. It is important to provide evidence and documentation to prove that certain assets are separate property and should not be subject to division. Consulting with an experienced property division attorney can help you safeguard your separate property rights.

What factors are considered when dividing property in a divorce?

When dividing property in a divorce, the court considers several factors, including the length of the marriage, each spouse's financial contributions, the value of the assets, the earning capacity of each spouse, and the needs of any dependent children. The court aims to achieve a fair and equitable distribution of the marital estate.

Can property division be negotiated outside of court?

Yes, property division can be negotiated outside of court through alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation or collaborative divorce. These methods allow spouses to work together with the assistance of professionals to reach a mutually agreeable property division settlement, avoiding the need for a lengthy court battle.

Dividing Marital Property Equitably & Efficiently

Generally speaking, when faced with the division of the real and personal property a couple has acquired there are four (4) exercises needed to sort out a fair division:

  • Identify all of the real and personal property;
  • Classify the asset or debt (separate vs. Marital or a hybrid thereof);
  • Place a value on the asset; and
  • Allocate the debt

Our experienced team of professionals will asset you in creating a document known as an Asset and Liability Statement to succinctly present the entirety of the estate under the above principles. Our team is proud to work with people of all income levels but having the specific knowledge and expertise in navigating financially complex and high-asset estates makes Martin Sir and Associates stand out above the rest.
