MARITAL PROPERTY DIVISION LAWYERS IN MASSACHUSETTS
Division of Marital Assets
Medford Property Division Lawyer
Child custody and the division of marital assets are the two most hotly contested areas in divorce cases. Our possessions are more than things: they are memories, they are emotional investments, they are the symbols that define us.
Or they may simply be things: things that we cannot afford to replace, things that are irreplaceable, such as family heirlooms.
If you had a prenuptial / antenuptial agreement in place, it will guide the division of property. However, if your financial situation has changed substantially during the marriage or if the marriage has been long-standing, it is not uncommon for a portion of the prenuptial agreement to be open for reconsideration. Consult with an attorney at the Law Office of Kevin P. O’Malley regarding your specific case.
The Medford property division lawyers at the Law Office of Kevin P. O’Malley work with divorcing and unmarried people (with or without cohabitation agreements) to arrive at property division decisions that work for them. Through negotiation or courtroom litigation, we vigorously defend our client’s interests in arriving at a fair and equitable distribution of property.
When necessary we work with financial specialists to gain a clear understanding of the proper value of assets, real estate, and businesses. Our clients have included couples with significant marital assets and executive compensation packages including stocks and stock options, pensions and retirement plans.
When A Spouse is Hiding Assets
At the Law Office of Kevin P. O’Malley, our Boston marital assets attorneys have worked on dozens of cases in which a spouse had unreported income, is self-employed or had hidden assets in preparation for asking for divorce. We regularly work with private investigators—one a former police chief and university professor—to uncover these assets so our client, and any children in the family, can benefit fairly from these family assets.
A former client was getting divorced from a man who worked in the building trades. He made a substantial hidden income from accepting work under the table. Our investigator, posing as a potential customer, got information from people the man worked with and discovered how much he had actually been paid for past projects. This made a substantial difference in our client’s ability to secure both property and financial support.
