The Factors At Play In Property Division

The court in Arkansas does not necessarily split property in half after a divorce. Instead, it strives for a division that is fair or “equitable.” In reality, this may look like:

  • One party giving up a house in exchange for their business
  • The courts awarding greater assets to a person who paid for their ex’s education
  • Offering a payout to an ex in order to maintain a pension or investment in full

There is room to negotiate, and the courts will typically uphold an outside agreement between exes if both exes consent to the agreement.
