Asset Valuation, Asset Division, and Debt Allocation

Massachusetts law looks to the equitable distribution of assets in a divorce. “Equitable” in this sense means “fair” - not necessarily “equal”. Before assets in a marriage can be allocated, they must be valued. Attorney Huettner has access to an array of experts who can value and appraise real estate, business interests, pensions, and personal property in order to provide realistic figures that will assist in the negotiation of a fair settlement, or that can be used to strengthen arguments made in court.

Property DivisionJust as important to a client’s financial stability is the matter of debt allocation, and identifying the origin of all of the liabilities that the parties accumulated during their marriage. Allocating these debts as fairly as possible is as important as distribution of assets for the long-range financial stability of the client. Where debt management has become problematic, Attorney Huettner provides clients with referrals to financial experts and advisors as part of the team that will help guide each case toward a successful conclusion.
