Alabama's System for Dividing Assets
Alabama is an equitable distribution state, which means that the court
will seek a fair allocation of property. There are two kinds of property
– marital and separate. Separate property is anything that one spouse
acquired before the marriage or was given separately during the marriage,
such as a gift or inheritance.
Marital property generally includes any or all of the following:
- Retirement funds
- Joint-inherited property
- The home
The court will then assign value to the martial property and begin the
process of division. When dividing the property, the court will take into
account things such as the length of the marriage, the occupation of each
spouse during the marriage, the needs each spouse has, the involvement
of any children, and other sources of income.
