Alabama Property Division Laws

Alabama is an equitable division state, which means property involved in a divorce will be divided in an equitable and fair manner – not equally. Only property obtained during the marriage is subject to asset division.

As we mentioned before, there are two types of property: marital property and separate property. Marital property is property acquired while married and separate property is considered property that was owned by one spouse prior to marriage or inherited by only one spouse during marriage.

The following are the common types of assets and property involved in asset division:

  • Houses and other real estate property
  • Vehicles
  • Bank accounts
  • Investments and stock options
  • Retirement funds
  • Jewelry
  • Artwork and collectibles
  • Furniture and antiques

If couples cannot agree on how property should be divided, then the court will become involved to decide which assets belong to which spouse. The court will consider various factors, such as length of the marriage, the standard of living during the marriage, each spouse’s financial contributions, and possible tax consequences involving property division.
