Marital Property Settlements

Property settlements involve the property that a couple obtained either before or during marriage. There are two types of property; marital, which is acquired during the marriage, and separate, which is acquired either before the marriage or through inheritance.

 Alabama law requires the division of the marital property to be equitable, meaning that it must be fair. That means that a judge may divide property in any matter that they deem fair, regardless of which spouse actually owns the property. Hodges Trial Lawyers can assess your case and advise you regarding your property settlement.
