Divide Marital Property On Your Terms

Once you've made the decision to end your marriage, the next step is to sort out logistical issues such as the division of marital property.

As your attorney, David Butts will aggressively advocate for a division of assets that reflects your interests. Our goal to help you start the next chapter of your life on firm financial footing.

Know The Difference Between Marital Property And Separate Property

One of the most important questions in the property division process is determining which assets are considered marital property and which are separate property. Basically, marital property is just about anything you and your spouse purchased while married. Separate property includes certain exempted assets such as inheritance, some gifts and, in some cases, 401(k)s. Anything you owned prior to your marriage is also considered separate property.

Mississippi is an "equitable distribution" state, meaning that the courts will use several variables to determine what distribution is fair to both parties. This determination can vary greatly, so it's important to have a lawyer on your side to advocate for you during this period.
