Can the spouses decided how they want to divide their property in a divorce?

In a Montana divorce, the spouses will have the opportunity to decide how they want to split their property between themselves. The court will usually accept a written property settlement agreement that describes the division of assets and the apportionment of liabilities.  If you cannot reach a compromise with your spouse, then the court will step in and divide your property for you.

If you and your spouse cannot agree about how to divide your property, the court will decide what is fair. Note that the division does not have to be equal to be fair.
