Montana is an equitable division state. The law recognizes that property acquired during a marriage is a product of the contributions of both spouses. In a divorce, the marital property will be divided. The property division will be "fair," but not necessarily equal. It is important to note that the person whose name is on the title to the property will not necessarily be awarded that property in the divorce.
