How Will Your Property Be Divided After Divorce?
There is no mystery about how the courts would like to see your property divided. Their starting point is for a 50/50 division between the divorcing spouses. Of course, there are a lot of factors that come into play, which can require a disparate division of the marital estate. The role of a property division lawyer is to stand by your side to ensure you walk away from your marriage without losing what is rightfully yours.
I take the time to listen to your story to better understand your financial situation and your goals. As an attorney, I am incredibly detail-oriented and will use more than 30 years of legal experience to help my clients clearly separate marital assets and debts in order to come to an amicable property division agreement.
Marital Property: Is Everything Subject To Division?
Achieving an equal split can be tough. While a bank account may be divided into half between husband and wife, a house cannot so easily be shared. To make matters even more complicated, there is the issue of exactly what marital property will be subject to division and what should be retained by each of the parties involved in the divorce proceedings.
I understand how to interpret and apply Massachusetts divorce and family laws, and how certain decisions can impact your future. I can walk you through the process of determining who should keep the family home, how to handle dividing credit card and other debts, how a property division agreement can impact taxes down the road, and much more.
I am known for my quick response to emails and calls and my insistence on keeping clients in the know at every step of the process, so you can be assured that you will have the most up-to-date information you will need to make smart decisions.
