Our firm has a deep understanding of Tennessee law as it applies to family law and separation, and we will use our experience to help you receive a favorable outcome for your case.

In some divorce cases, an agreement based on property and asset division can be reached amicably by the divorcing couple through mediation or uncontested divorce, but in other cases, the details may have to be hashed out in a court of law. All property in the state of Tennessee is considered communal property if it has been obtained during the course of the marriage or during divorce proceedings. If there are no prenuptial agreements, marital property may be equally distributed between the couple. Equitable distribution is a fair distribution of a couple's assets at value worth — not necessarily in terms of numerical equality.

There are a few factors that a judge will consider when determining the overall distribution of property, including:

  • The amount of income that each party has
  • The contribution that each spouse made during the course of the marriage
  • The length of the marriage
  • The age, health, skills and employment of all parties
  • Children that may from the marriage
  • Social Security benefits of each spouse
  • The value of property in each of the spouse's names

Client Testimonials

We work within our clients time frames, guidelines & unique budgets
    Mr. Bowlin represented me on an assault charge. My bond conditions wouldn't allow me to go home to my husband and children. The day after my arrest, on a Sunday, Troy met with me and my family to discuss my unfortunate arrest. The very next morning Mr. Bowlin was able to get my bond conditions lifted allowing me to go home to my family. His office went above and beyond the call of duty which resulted in a dismissal of my charge.
