Prepare To Divide Assets In Your Massachusetts Divorce
Legally speaking, property division is at the heart of every divorce. What has belonged to both of you during your marriage will be reallocated to one or the other through a negotiated settlement or court order. According to Massachusetts family law, the division of assets should be “equitable.” A family court judge may approve or disapprove of a property division settlement based on whether it’s equitable.
