Asset Distribution for Divorcing Individuals in Massachusetts
Massachusetts uses equitable division when determining how to divide assets fairly. There are a number of factors that the court will look at, including the length of the marriage, the income and income potential of each party, and the conduct of the parties during the marriage. Equitable division does not necessarily mean 50-50 and will depend upon the individual circumstances.
It is often better for both parties when they are able to arrive at amicable agreements regarding property division, rather than drawing out litigation. When there are significant assets at stake, however, asserting your rights – even when that makes trial necessary – may be worth it to protect what should be yours.
