Marital Asset Division
Plymouth, Bridgewater, and Taunton divorce attorneys address complex property questions
The division of your marital property is likely to be one of the most contentious issues in your divorce. Some assets are readily divisible — such as your bank accounts and personal belongings — and these divisions may result in few disagreements. Other assets are more difficult to value, such as your home or professional practices. Regardless of the nature of your assets, you should have a strong advocate on your side to ensure your interests are protected. Using our 38 years of experience, Bridgewater lawyers at Studley Law Offices obtain effective results in the division of personal property, real estate, pension funds, automobiles, securities and other marital assets.
Dividing the marital home
The marital home is often one of the most valuable items a couple owns. Dividing the home can be one of the most challenging aspects of your divorce. Whether you choose to remain in your home or to sell your property, our lawyers in Plymouth guide you through the process. We also develop innovative strategies for handling the potential that your home may not sell in a stagnant real estate market. Options we discuss with you may include:
- Obtaining an objective appraisal
- Objecting to incorrect valuing offered by your spouse
- Selling your portion of your home to your spouse
- Buying out your spouse
- Putting your home on the market
- Retaining a real estate agent
- Dividing the mortgage, tax, insurance and maintenance payments on the property
- Earning income on property until it sells
Retirement and pension funds
You and your spouse carefully planned for your financial future by diligently contributing to your retirement funds. Divorce should not require you to start over in building a nest egg or put your savings at risk. Our Bridgewater lawyer negotiates fair pension settlements that give you the financial security you deserve. We draft qualified domestic relations orders (QDRO) that establish your right to receive your portion of the pension or annuity distribution when your former spouse becomes eligible.
