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
  • Assets
  • Debt

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.
