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.
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.
