Our Aggressive Clarksville Property Division Attorneys Fight To Ensure A Positive Financial Outcome After Your Divorce

We Protect Your Financial Future Through The Divorce Process

Equitable vs. equal property distribution

The terms equitable and equal have very different meanings in the legal world. Equitable is defined as the “fair, but not necessarily equal, division between former spouses of property acquired during the marriage.” Equal refers to the “even division of marital property.”  The dedicated attorneys at Bateman & Bateman, P.C., ferret out these and other legal differences to bring you a fair and equitable property division in litigating your divorce lawsuit.

Marital property

Marital property is defined as “all real and personal property, both tangible and intangible, acquired by either or both spouses during the course of the marriage up to the date of the final divorce hearing and owned by either or both spouses as of the date of filing a complaint for divorce.”  Even in the best circumstances, you need a property division attorney in Clarksville to handle the legal work involved in dividing your property. Attorneys at Bateman & Bateman, P.C., have more than 60 years of combined experience protecting your rights when marital property is divided.

Marital debts

Marital debts are all debts incurred by either or both spouses during the course of the marriage up to the date of the final divorce hearing. In a divorce, the court has to make an equitable division of both marital debt and marital assets. A Clarksville property division attorney protects your legal rights. The law firm of Bateman & Bateman, P.C., focuses on protecting you from the responsibility of debt while securing your rightful assets.


Marital property can include pension plans (including military pensions), retirement accounts and other investments. However, a determination of what is marital property, especially when part of the value of the asset was acquired before the marriage, can be complicated. To determine what is fair in the division of marital property and debts, you should seek the advice of a Clarksville divorce attorney. Our firm’s attorneys are experienced with retirement assets.
