How a Nashville Matrimonial Lawyer Can Help
Since Tennessee is an equitable distribution state, the property is not necessarily divided evenly between parting spouses. The courts take many factors into consideration, including the contribution each partner made to the marital estate. Courts consider how to split up the following kinds of assets:
- Real estate
- Cars and furniture
- Pension plans and retirement accounts
- Cash values in insurance policies and bank accounts
- Business profits, inventory, and accounts receivables
- Jewelry and other valuables
- Gifts and inheritances
Consult a Nashville matrimonial attorney for thoughtful marriage planning
Divorcing couples often fight bitterly over assets, including the children, to spite each other or win a personal victory. That is why most matrimonial lawyers in Nashville recommend entering into a prenuptial agreement prior to marriage, when couples are still receptive to fairness and mutual respect.
In the prenuptial agreement, known as a prenup, couples decide exactly how their property and debts will be divided as well as how child custody and visitation will be handled, all before they are even married.
Matrimonial attorneys in Nashville can provide the agreements you need
Nashville matrimonial attorneys can also draw up post-nuptial agreements to make these decisions during the marriage. Cohabitation agreements define the rights and obligations of two unmarried people who live together.
