Is Tennessee a 50/50 Divorce State?

Property divisionWhen it comes to property division during divorce, Tennessee is not a 50/50 state, but an equitable distribution state. While this property division can be equal, equitable division does not always mean equal.

The primary focus is fairness, not equality. So instead of a 50-50 split, it could be 40-60, 35-65, or any other division that accurately reflects who should be entitled to the property.

Spouses have the right to divide property among themselves, but a judge will intervene if the parties cannot come to an agreement.

When dividing property, courts will consider:

  • The duration of the marriage
  • The age and health of the spouses
  • Each party’s contributions to the acquisition of property and assets
  • The financial needs and liabilities of each party
  • The skills and earning capacities of each spouse
  • Each spouses’ estate at the time of the marriage
  • The economic circumstances of each party following the divorce
  • The tax consequences that will affect each spouse
  • Any wasteful expenditures of each party

What Determines Business Valuation?

When dividing marital assets during a divorce, one crucial matter that arises is determining the value of any businesses owned by either party. This can be a difficult and confusing task, even for the owner of the company.

An experienced attorney can help ensure that you have an accurate, up-to-date valuation and that the judge understands the method that you used to arrive at your assigned value. This is a critical part of the property division process since the judge may ultimately decide how the business will be split between you and your spouse.
