Differentiating equitable vs. equal property division

The common school of thought regarding property division in Nashville is that all marital property will be distributed equally amongst both sides in a divorce case. Most assume this to be ture because it is required by law. While there may indeed be many cases that see a divorcing couple evenly share their assets, there is actually nothing in the state's statutes stating that marital assets must be shared equally. Tennessee follows the equitable distribution model when dealing with property division cases. While "equitable" and "equal" certainly sound similar, many are surprised to learn that they are not the same thing.
