Danvers Property Division Attorney

Representing North Shore Boston Divorce Clients in Marital Property Division

The issue of marital property and debt division can be a complex and divisive one in the divorce process. Marital property can include the family home, other real estate, vehicles, boats, cash, savings accounts, retirement accounts, pensions, stock portfolios, family-owned businesses or business interests, art collections, jewelry, and more. Those couples who have been married for a substantial length of time may have complicated financial histories and holdings which require identification, valuations or appraisals, and may involve tax considerations as well. Furthermore, couples may not agree on how property and debts should be divided and distributed, leading to protracted disputes over these resolution s.

Any property division agreement will generally become final upon the divorce judgment issued by the family court and will not be open to later modification. Because of this, you will want to ensure that the property division agreement is fair and equitable and one you can live with. At the law firm of Lisa A. Greenberg, you can discuss your property division concerns with a North Shore Boston divorce attorney to find out how we can thoroughly represent your interests in this vital issue. Whether through negotiation, mediation, or through divorce litigation, we will take the necessary steps to help protect your rights and interests at every stage of the legal process.

Massachusetts Marital Property Division

Massachusetts is an equitable distribution state, which means that courts will base their determinations on the basis of what is fair and equitable. Equitable does not always translate into "equal," as in the case of the family home. Since a home cannot be divided, decisions about how to fairly compensate both spouses, whether through a sale or other means will need to be made. Similarly, stock portfolios, pensions, and retirement accounts may require complicated financial valuations and involve financial and tax implications as will family-owned businesses, partnerships, or interests in professional business groups.

Our firm can provide the legal assistance needed in determining these valuations, financial and other implications, and help create a property division arrangement that will be as fair and just as possible. We have helped countless clients in the North Shore Boston area with this often thorny and complicated divorce issue.
