Asset Division

What is Asset Division?

During divorce proceedings, separating parties usually have combined assets of some variety, whether it be something as traditional as dividing investments, a home or vehicles, or more complex assets like a business, debt or insurance policies.

It is a common misconception that assets are split 50/50 during a divorce, so it is important to have an experienced litigator who understands the complexities of asset division in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
