New England Divorce Attorneys
Both Massachusetts and New Hampshire are equitable division states. That means that marital property division is just and fair. What is considered fair and just to both parties is not necessarily always a 50/50 split — sometimes the circumstances of the marriage dictate what would normally be considered an unequal division.
Our divorce attorneys assist with the broad spectrum of issues arising in marital property division, including:
- Determination of whether property is considered separate or marital property
- Division of marital assets such as residences, retirement accounts, investments and other assets and property
- Business valuation and division, while finding a way to continue operation of the business, if possible
- Uncovering hidden assets
Negotiation and mediation of asset division provides you and your spouse the opportunity to control how your marital assets are divided, rather than leaving this determination in the hands of a judge who cannot know or understand the unique aspects of your marital life. When you are unable to reach an agreement, however, we represent your best interests in court — our goal is to protect your rights as you start the next chapter of your life.
We can also assist you with all other family law and divorce matters.
