In order to protect the property and assets they have worked so hard for throughout the course of their lives, it is important for men and women to understand their property rights in divorce. The first step is consulting with a knowledgeable family law attorney.

Our family law group is made up of exceptional attorneys with the negotiation, mediation and trial skills necessary to ensure our clients receive their fair share of the marital property.

Westborough Asset Distribution Attorneys

Regardless of the size of the marital estate, the key is proper valuation of assets and identification of debts that have been accumulated through the marriage. Our lawyers have extensive experience determining what property is marital in nature and thus eligible for equitable distribution in the divorce.

Our lawyers focus on identifying all assets and debts, and determining whether they are marital property. Marital property is anything that was obtained throughout the course of the marriage, with few exceptions such as inheritance. We have the skills and expertise to facilitate the division of assets such as:

  • Marital homes
  • Vacation homes and investment properties
  • Bank accounts
  • Retirement accounts
  • Closely held and family businesses
  • Vested and nonvested stock options

Homemaker Contribution To Marriage

The contributions of homemakers are recognized when the time comes to divide marital property. Homemakers are considered to have contributed an equal share to the marriage as a spouse who works outside of the home. We work closely with homemakers to ensure they receive credit for the contributions they have made, both financially and otherwise, throughout the course of their marriage.
