Division of Property under Massachusetts Law: Equitable Distribution
Absent a marital property settlement agreement or divorce settlement agreement, marital property is to be divided equitably in a divorce. Equitable does not necessarily mean 50/50. After a careful determination of what property is considered marital property, the courts will evaluate a number of factors to determine what division is fair — or equitable. Factors considered may include:
- Length of the marriage
- Contributions to the marriage (income and other contributions)
- Age and health of both parties
- Income and ability to earn income
- Debts or liabilities
- Many other factors
At the Law Offices of Kenneth E. Lindauer, our experienced legal help is designed to advise clients of their rights and protect their interests in divorce and the division of property. We work hard to ensure that property division is fair by uncovering hidden assets, obtaining property appraisals, and exposing other factors that may have otherwise gone undetected.
