Franklin, Massachusetts, Property Division Attorneys
Divorce and Debt Information: Lawyers in Hyde Park and Franklin
Property division involves more than just cars and houses. The process can be complex and become contentious, particularly where sentimental items and complex assets like retirement accounts, pensions, businesses, and real estate holdings are involved. At Yellin & Hyman, P.C., we focus on securing the property you deserve following a divorce.
There are no hard and fast rules to property division in Massachusetts. Judges have a wide range of discretion in this area. While Massachusetts is an equitable distribution state, equitable does not always mean a 50/50 division of marital assets with your spouse. The goal of equitable property division is to allot each party a fair portion based on several factors including, but not limited to, the respective contributions of the parties. Since the decisions are within the discretion of the judges, you need an attorney who can make persuasive and aggressive arguments in favor of your position.

You Need Experience in Division of Property and Debts
One of a divorce lawyer's tasks is to determine the value of property brought into and acquired during a marriage and then determine what is a reasonable and fair division of that property based on the circumstances of the case.
In addition to dividing marital assets, we help divide up debts as well. Credit card balances and other loans secured during the marriage may be assigned to one or both spouses. Again, the complexity requires an experienced attorney to ensure the allocation of debt is fair, equitable and reasonable.
