Decades of Experience in Property Settlements

Having a knowledgeable attorney at your side during a divorce is particularly important when it comes to property division. Missing a detail can have significant and long-term effects. At Law Office of Kim-Marie Phelan, we have more than 28 years of experience devoted almost exclusively to family law. Over the years, we’ve conducted many asset searches and we’ve drafted meticulously detailed settlement agreements in Essex County, Middlesex County, Norfolk County and Suffolk County.

Ensuring Your Settlement Is Detailed and Complete

When you file for divorce, your property division settlements can either be agreed upon between you and your spouse and approved by a judge, or they can be determined in court. Once your divorce has been finalized, however, there are very few instances when the settlement can be modified. That’s why it’s essential that your property settlement is thorough and complete, to begin with.

Don't Assume You're Due Half in a Settlement

Although Massachusetts is identified as an equitable property division state, that does not mean that property in a divorce will be divided in half automatically. In some cases, the judge may decide that a disproportionate division of assets is more equitable given your circumstances and a range of factors.
  • Health and age of each spouse
  • Length of the marriage
  • Domestic contributions made by each spouse
  • Needs of the dependent children
  • Spousal misconduct
  • Earning Capacity and employment opportunities
Let us make the best case for an asset distribution that is fair to you.
