Can Property Be Divided Outside of Court?

It is not uncommon for separating couples to come to an agreement with how their marital assets should be divided, without the involvement of the court. However, even when proceedings seem simple and straightforward, it is still recommended that you enlist the legal counsel of a trusted Worcester County property division attorney.

An attorney can help make sure that:

  • Emotions are not getting in the way of fairness
  • Your ex-spouse is not hiding assets from you
  • Your assets have been valued accurately
  • Shared funds are distributed in a reasonable manner

If Litigation Becomes Necessary

Unfortunately, such civil proceedings are not always possible and the court may need to get involved in the process.

When determining what is equitable, the court will likely consider:

  • The length of the marriage
  • The conduct of both spouses during the marriage
  • The age, health, and general condition of both spouses
  • Both spouse’s occupations and economic circumstances
  • What both parties contribute to the household
  • The standard of living the couple is accustomed to
  • How and when the assets in question were acquired
  • Anything else deemed relevant
