Helping Little Rock Divorcing Couples With Property Distribution

Understanding Property Division In Arkansas

Generally, anything acquired during the marriage from the efforts of either party is marital property. Certain assets acquired by a spouse during marriage or prior to marriage are considered separate property and are not considered part of the marital estate. All marital assets and property must be accounted for and divided in the divorce proceeding.

However, the equitable division of property and assets in divorce is often difficult to accept. Each party usually thinks it is entitled to more than the other, and negotiations can easily become heated. It is not uncommon to have to litigate marital property division, so the representation of an experienced lawyer is essential to ensure you can get what you deserve.
