Property division can be one of the most highly contested parts of a divorce proceeding.
Tennessee is an equitable distribution state which means that, irrespective of marital fault, all marital assets and debts divided in a fair and equitable manner.
The first step in property division is determining what marital property is and what separate property is. In general, anything you owned prior to the wedding is separate property. Anything you bought after the date of the wedding is marital property. Only marital property and debts will be divided in the property division settlement. It is important that couples reach an agreement on property division.
