Massachusetts Divorce: Dividing Property
All divorcing couples must divide their marital property and assign marital debts as part of the divorce process. Massachusetts law requires the division of property in a divorce to be equitable. That means it must be fair though not necessarily equal. Spouses usually divide property by giving specific items to each spouse or by selling assets and apportioning the proceeds. If spouses are unable to reach an agreement without court involvement, an arbitrator or a judge will divide the property and debts in a way that is fair under the circumstances.
