The basic question of property division is, “What is marital property?” and “What is separate property?” Marital property must be equitably divided according to Tennessee law, while separate property belongs solely to either party. Marital property is gained during the marriage and can consist of things such as an increase in a home’s equity even if the house was owned by only one of the party’s before the marriage. Separate property is not divided.
It is the characterization of the various forms of assets and liabilities that is the most important. Things that must be considered include:
- Retirement accounts
