How Is Marital Property Divided in Mississippi?

Mississippi is an "equitable distribution" state. The courts look at the marital and non-marital estates of each spouse when making any decisions about property division. They adjust the division of property for each spouse with the idea that the parties should leave the marriage in an equitable position based on a number of factors.

The factors which are considered in property division may include:

  • Length of the marriage
  • Contributions to the marriage
  • Non-marital estate (inheritances, pre-marital property, etc.)
  • Tax consequences
  • Income and earning capacity of each spouse

Non-Marital & Marital Property

Non-marital estate refers to those assets which were acquired prior to the marriage or had nothing to do with the other spouse during the course of the marriage. Examples include inheritances, pre-marital earnings, and accounts built prior to marriage. Marital property are assets which were accumulated during the course of the marriage through the joint efforts of both spouses.You can protect your marital property with a well-written prenuptial agreement.
