Understanding High-Asset Divorce In Tennessee

Tennessee is an equitable division state. This means that if you and your spouse cannot agree on how your marital property will be divided, the court will do so in a manner it considers equitable. Equitable may not mean equally, and it may not be what you would want to happen.

For example, the court may decide that an asset should be sold and the proceeds divided. However, selling an asset such as a home or a business may not be in the financial best interests of either party.

Our lawyers can assist you with complex property division issues, including:

  • Valuation of businesses and professional practices
  • Division of executive compensation such as stock options and deferred compensation
  • Protection of assets you owned before your marriage
  • Determining whether or not a spouse is entitled to alimony
  • Determining the tax implications of your marital property settlement

Our lawyers have the requisite skill and experience to resolve complex divorce disputes over division of property such as business assets, real estate, retirement savings, stocks and other valuable assets. Attorney Larry Vaughan is a certified mediator by the Tennessee Supreme Court. As a result, he can help you resolve your marital property settlement by way of mediation or litigation.
