Case Analysis – Simmons v Simmons Case Cite/Title : Vincent Simmons v. Dorothy Simmons, 98 Ark. App. 12 (Ark. Ct. App. 2007) Relevant Facts of the case This appeal arises out of the trial court’s division of property in a divorce case. Vincent Simmons appeals from the trial court’s order awarding to his wife, Dorothy Simmons, a one-half interest in land that he had inherited from his parents. Vincent contends that the land is non-marital property and, consequently, should have remained his separate property. Vincent and Dorothy Simmons were married in 1976. Vincent’s mother executed a trust in order to convey the land in Florida to her children, Vincent and his sister, upon her death. After his mother’s death, the land remained in trust for several years. Dorothy became concerned that she would not receive an interest in the Florida land if Vincent died before the trust was distributed, so she hired an attorney to prepare a document to protect her interest.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
