Property & Asset Division

Division of Property in a Divorce

Division of property during a divorce can be both complicated and contentious. It becomes particularly so in cases where there are substantial assets or income involved. At the Boston law firm of Taylor, Ganson & Perrin, LLP, our attorneys have been helping people with significant property settlement matters for many years. Lack of a prenuptial agreement can add to the complexity of dividing substantial assets. To speak with an attorney with the skills and experience to manage the issues involved in any size of a marital estate, contact us to schedule an appointment.

Property can be divided in many ways as part of a divorce - determining our client's goals is paramount in crafting the right division.

We know that full disclosure of income and assets is imperative to devising a fair property settlement during a divorce.  It is also important to conduct a thorough evaluation of their property. When necessary, we consult with investigators and experts to locate hidden assets in closely held companies and sole proprietorships. We also use specialized appraisers for real estate and businesses valuation. Our experience managing and valuing trusts puts our firm in a strong position to assess the value of property and the income it may generate.

When we structure a property settlement proposal, we take into account the potential tax implications of the agreement. We also weigh the implications of alimony in determining an appropriate property settlement. Each client's circumstances are different, and when developing a proposal for dividing property we strive to create arrangements that meet their particular and specific needs.

Assets that should be taken into account when proposing a property settlement include, but are not limited to:

  • Retirement accounts
  • Stocks and bonds
  • Stock options
  • Mutual funds
  • Real estate
  • Insurance
  • Salary, bonuses, and commissions
  • Inheritances
  • Personal property such as art, antiques, cars, boats and jewelry
  • Trust Funds
