Mississippi’s Equitable Distribution Laws
Mississippi law dictates that marital property should be divided “equitably,” not necessarily “equally” during divorce. This allows the court to evaluate your family’s circumstances to determine a fair division of assets, instead of automatically splitting them 50-50. While marital estates are usually divided fairly evenly, the court will consider a number of additional factors, including:
- The earning potential of each spouse
- If one person was at fault for ending the marriage
- The mental and physical health of each spouse
- The value of each spouse’s separate property holdings
Our experienced family law attorneys will carefully analyze your family’s assets and debts. We will distinguish between separate and marital property and represent your case to secure a fair division of assets. We can handle all divorce cases, including high-asset divorces with complicated investments, significant property holdings and retirement accounts.
