Written on behalf of Daniel H. Chambers Attorney at Law, P .C.
Division of property laws vary from state to state. For divorce in Alabama, the courts divide marital property, debts and obligations owed between the spouses according to a system of equitable division of property.
This includes assets that:
In Alabama, divorcing spouses are usually not entitled to the separate property of the other spouse. The division of property usually only involves shared property (Or “community property”).
Marital property, by contrast, covers a wide variety of assets, including:
Courts need to identify which assets are separate and which are marital. Once they figure this out, the assets will be appraised and equitable distribution will be determined.
Judges are supposed to distribute marital property based on circumstances of your specific case. A number of factors influence the judge’s decision, including:
How much weight a judge gives each factor depends on the facts of the marriage, the nature of the property, and the unique circumstances surrounding the divorce. Learn more here.
