Without the benefit of our years of experience in family law practice, many of our clients approaching divorce realize that they do not know how to protect their rightful share of retirement assets and investments. If we represent you in the property division aspect of your divorce, we will guide you as your and your spouse’s assets, such as those below, are under consideration.

A Massachusetts divorce is expected to involve an equitable distribution of assets, which may not be an equal division of assets. As you get ready to negotiate a settlement agreement or present arguments to a family law judge, start by identifying your priorities in the division of assets, including retirement accounts and investments.
For example, you and your spouse may opt to leave certain investments completely under the control of either spouse, rather than having to divide retirement accounts. Or you may swap retirement funds for business assets.
These are generalized examples. You and your attorney can efficiently determine what is best for your divorce.
