Equitable Property Division in MA
In the state of Massachusetts, the law requires property and debt to be divided equitably and fairly. This does not always mean that it is exactly 50/50, but it is up to you, your spouse, and your attorney to come up with a plan of how your property will be split up. One of our Brockton family lawyers can help you to avoid going to litigation over who gets what, but we can also represent you in court if necessary.
Property and debt that is divided equitably includes:
- Debt incurred during your marriage.
- Valuables purchased or acquired during the marriage.
- Real estate purchased during the marriage.
- 401(k)s and other retirement or savings funds.
