Property Division In Massachusetts

Since Massachusetts is not a community property state, the assets and property acquired during the course of a marriage are subject to equitable division. This means that each party receives a fair distribution of property that is not necessarily exactly equal. This allows for us to be able to advocate for your position as far as the property to which you believe you are entitled. Also, in certain avenues of resolution, it allows for property division to be determined through give-and-take between parties.

We offer sound advice and creative solutions for asset division, including:

  • Establishing separate property
  • Valuation of a business or professional practice
  • Real estate, including primary residences, vacation homes and undeveloped property
  • Pensions and retirement accounts, such as IRAs and 401(k)s
  • Savings and investments
  • Jewelry, art, vehicles and valuables
  • Debts, loans and equity

No two cases are alike. Each property division case is handled by Mr. Wozniak on an individual basis, with an approach that is tailored to suit each client's needs and goals.
