Massachusetts Lawyers Who Know Marital Property Division
In a divorce, one of the most heavily disputed issues is the division of the marital property. At the Westfield, Massachusetts, Law Offices of Moir & Ross, we know that protecting your interests means providing uncompromising support. We know what is at stake and we work hard to make sure that you get the results you deserve.
Although some divorces are relatively simple, many divorces involve complex division of marital property. Marital property can involve a broad range of things:
- Personal property
- Real estate, like your marital home
- Family businesses
- Marital debts
- Trust funds
- Joint and separate bank accounts
Marital property is usually defined by the courts as any property acquired by you and your spouse during the marriage. There are a few exceptions to marital property, like things that were given as a gift to just to one spouse. In a divorce, courts divide marital property “equitably.” Equitably doesn’t necessarily mean that the property will be divided in a fifty-fifty split.
