Property Division There's No Substitution For Experience

Property Division Lawyer in Attleboro

Protecting Clients’ Interests throughout the Greater Boston Area

Each state approaches property division differently. In Massachusetts, property and assets are divided according to the law of "equitable distribution." This means that each party is awarded property and assets in an equal and fair manner, but not necessarily 50-50. While the courts are guided by this law, it is possible to pursue the property to which you believe you are entitled during a divorce. Attorney Brian D. Roman, an experienced Attleboro property division lawyer, can help.

Need more information about how property and assets may be divided in your specific situation? Call (508) 576-5922 now or contact Brian D. Roman, Attorney at Law online.

Property & Assets Subject to Division

There is a wide range of property and assets that are subject to division during the divorce process, including:

  • Primary residences
  • Vacation homes
  • Real property
  • Personal property
  • Bank accounts
  • Retirement accounts (including 401(k)s and IRAs)
  • Stock options and employee benefits
  • Offshore accounts

Any property and assets that were acquired during the course of the marriage are considered marital property and are subject to division. Separate property may not be divided, though parties may argue over whether or not it was actually separate. Any property protected by a prenuptial agreement stays with the individual parties.

Protecting Your Rights & Property

Though it may be possible to divide property after a divorce through a modification order, this is an unusual situation. It is more likely that you will be expected to abide by the provisions and asset allocation set forth in your divorce decree. This is why it is so essential to have an attorney on your side who fully understands your needs, goals, and the laws that govern the division of property.

Brian D. Roman, Attorney at Law offers more than two decades of experience handling all aspects of divorce and family law, including property division. Mr. Roman’s insight into these cases can be beneficial to you, providing you with a straightforward and realistic view of how a property settlement may be presented or negotiated, or how a judge may award property if the divorce proceeds to court.

    "Can’t explain how efficient he is"

    "Great guy and such a gentleman."

    Unfortunately, I found myself in some unexpected trouble when a friend used my name years prior when she got caught shoplifting. I was stuck with felony charges and even worse didn't commit the crime. I chose Brian Roman to represent me and he did everything he could to help me and eventually got all the charges dropped with only court fines. I left that day very pleased but what stuck out the most was when I was walking home. My car had been broken down so I had to walk home from the courthouse. Brian pulled over and picked me up in his personal vehicle to give me a ride home even though it was out of his way. Great guy and such a gentleman. Highly recommend!

    "Best Lawyer Around"

    Mr. Roman exceeded my expectations. After an unfortunate car accident that left me fearful of losing my license, job and ability to transport my child, I scrambled to find a lawyer who would help me fix the mess I got myself into. Mr.Roman came through with the best possible result I could have asked for. He is known in the courts and I could tell he was respected and liked. He is the guy you want on your side walking you through the murky waters of the judicial system. It’s a scary place to be but I always felt confident with Mr. Roman by my side. Thanks again for everything, I owe you more than I could ever repay!
