How Property Division Works in MA

There are many misconceptions about how property division works. Massachusetts is an equitable division state, which means that property is to be divided fairly, but fairly does not always mean equally. However, it takes a great deal to shift the balance away from a 50-50 division of property.

Perhaps your spouse lost a substantial amount of marital assets gambling. Or maybe your spouse carried on a lengthy extramarital affair, spending money on the other person. Maybe you stayed at home for many years, leaving your career to raise the children, and you are worried that you will not make enough money when you return to the workforce. What factors do the courts consider in dividing assets under current family law rules? Tomasino Legal Group's Wellesley divorce attorneys can help you understand the laws and how it applies in your situation. We take every opportunity to protect you, your children and your property during the divorce process.

A Word of Caution When Protecting Your Assets

It's natural that you would want to protect your assets. But think twice before you do anything that can lead to serious consequences. Transferring assets to another family member or failing to disclose assets can hurt your case. Always discuss your situation with a divorce lawyer before you take any major steps. We can advise you of all your options and whether you can benefit from mediation to help you save time and money.
