Assets Divided During Divorce

When you are considering divorce, division of your marital assets likely weighs heavily on your mind. The court will attempt to equitably divide the following assets:

  • Primary residence
  • Vacation homes
  • Pension or retirement accounts
  • 401(k) accounts
  • Military retirement benefits
  • Joint accounts

If you have been married for a short period of time, it is likely that the court will put both parties back into the position they were in before the marriage.

For longer marriages, the court evaluates a number of factors to determine who should get the property after divorce. The factors used by Massachusetts help the court determine how the marital assets should be divided.
