What constitutes marital property?

In Massachusetts, the courts divide marital property equitably. But what constitutes marital property? According to Massachusetts law, “marital” property includes anything acquired by either spouse during the marriage. Anything gained before the marriage is “separate” property and will not be considered. In other words, separate property cannot be divided by the court during divorce proceedings.

What is Property Division in Massachusetts?

Under Massachusetts law, all marital properties are supposed to be divided equitably. This means that it will not necessarily be a complete 50/50 split, but the division of assets and debt should be fair. If you decide to mediate your divorce, you will have the opportunity to sit down and discuss your existing property, assets, and debt and come to decisions which illustrate an equitable split. In the case that you go through litigation, the judge will decide on splitting marital property and debts.

The assets and debt which may be split include:

  • Cash and savings accounts
  • Checking accounts
  • Valuables and art
  • Retirement accounts
  • Real estate
  • Businesses
