Division of Property

When it comes to the property division, Tennessee is an equitable distribution state.

The spouses are eligible to solve all the property issues by themselves, making a Marital Dissolution Agreement. However, to do so, they must agree to everything in the request, must not have minor children, and the wife must not be pregnant at the time of the divorce.

Otherwise, the division of the property becomes a court matter. In Tennessee, like in every equitable distribution state, the spouses may get either equal or different shares of marital property after a divorce. The judge doesn’t split all the marital property 50/50 but considers each divorce case separately and decides what proportions would be fair in a particular situation. A lot of factors must be taken into account, among which are each party’s contribution to the family welfare, the length of the marriage, retirement benefits of the spouses, the custody situation, and so on.

Only shared marital property is subject to division. All property acquired by the spouses before the marriage, anything gained in exchange for such a property, and personal gifts and inheritances of each party, is considered to be separate property. Separate property remains with the initial owners.

Our smooth breakup allowed us to file for uncontested divorce and we just decided to arrange it as simply as possible. Online divorce seemed to be a good idea, and now I'm sure we did it right. All the papers were prepared with no issues and I'm pleased with the price. Thanks.

I think that all the papers related to a certain county with its own legal nuances would be prepared correctly only by a Tennessee-based company. So that's why I used TennesseeOnlineDivorce and I was really satisfied. My divorce papers were completed in a timely manner and I had no troubles with filing. That was a really smooth process and you can be confident with your filing.

It always seemed to me that divorce must be a much more complicated process. I couldn't imagine how I would cope with that. Where do I get all those papers, how to fill them out and where to go and what to do? So, I was really glad I found tennesseeonlinedivorce.com and they took care of all the paperwork and gave me clear instructions on how to file with the court. That made the whole process so much easier!
