How Do We Divide Property in Mississippi?
In Mississippi, property is divided equitably or fairly. You do not necessarily have to receive an equal share of the property. The judge only looks to see that the property is divided in a fair or equitable manner. This means that the judge will not necessarily be concerned with whether or not the property is divided equally, but that the property is divided in a way that is fair or equitable.
In deciding how to divide property, the judge may consider the following factors:
- The duration of the marriage
- The age and health of each spouse
- The financial circumstances of each spouse
- Whether a spouse contributed to the acquisition of property
- Whether a spouse's conduct caused the divorce
The law in Mississippi does not provide guidance on how to divide property. This means that the judge has broad discretion in deciding how to divide the property. This means that you should seek the help of an experienced Jackson property division attorney to help you decide how to divide your property in a way that is fair and that protects your rights.
