Property Division

Massachusetts uses the concept of Equitable Distribution of marital assets. There are a number of factors which the judge uses to determine what distribution is equitable. Marital property includes pensions, bank accounts, stocks, bonds, real estate, personal property, antiques, collections, automobiles, cash value of life insurance, and all other assets including those which were inherited or gifted. Just because an asset is included, that does not mean the other spouse will get a share if any part of it. But, inherited and gifted assets can be problematic.
