Gallatin Property Division Lawyer

Divorce goes beyond the emotional relationship between the parties. Divorce can have very significant economic consequences. One of the economic considerations in a divorce is the division of property. In a divorce, division of property can be controlled by premarital agreements, if one exists, or by state community property laws. In Tennessee, only marital property is considered in the property division process. Determining what marital property is can sometimes be confusing because certain circumstances can transform separate property, which is the sole property of a spouse, into marital property, which is the joint property of the spouses.

What Constitutes Marital Property for Property Division in Tennessee

Marital property includes any property acquired during a marriage, legal separation or in anticipation of a marriage.  Marital property is defined under TN Code § 36-4-121 (2021) to include such things as pension and retirement benefits accrued during the marriage and an increase in value of separate property attributable to the other party.

Generally, separate property is any property that was owned by one spouse before the marriage began. Gifts and inheritance received by one spouse during the marriage remain separate property.

Determining what constitutes marital property is the first step in the division of property because only marital property is subject to equitable division in a divorce. An experienced Gallatin property division lawyer can review your assets and liabilities and advise you about property division in your case.
