How does a court divide property in a South Dakota divorce?

In a South Dakota divorce, a court divides property by considering:

(1) length of the marriage;

(2) value of the property owned by the spouses;

(3) age of the spouses;

(4) health of the spouses;

(5) ability of the spouses to earn a living;

(6) contribution of each spouse to accumulating the property; and

(7) income-producing capacity of the property owned by the spouses.
