How Do Missouri Courts Divide Property?
Asset division is easily one of the most complicated parts of a divorce. You want to receive the best outcome possible while adhering to the state’s laws of equitable division. Under equitable division, the court divides assets and debts in a fair manner between each spouse.
This does not necessarily mean that everything will be divided 50-50. If one spouse has a higher income than the other, for example, the court may award them fewer assets. Additionally, if one spouse has separate property that is of more value than the other spouse’s, or if one spouse has engaged in marital misconduct, the court has the discretion to stagger the division of the marital estate. Since there is a lot of room for interpretation in equitable division, it is crucial to have a lawyer like Mr. Johnson who can help ensure you receive your fair share of the property.
