Post-Judgment Motions to Assign Previously Unassigned Property in MA Divorce
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN PROPERTY IS OMITTED FROM A DIVORCE JUDGMENT?
Complaints to Assign Property Omitted in Divorce
If property is not disclosed or otherwise adjudicated in a divorce proceeding and the aggrieved party later finds out about this property, he or she may file a complaint in the Probate and Family Court to assign that property pursuant to M.G.L.A. c. 208, § 34. Likewise, when a party fraudulently transfers property in the anticipation of divorce, such property may be the subject of a post-judgment complaint to assign that property. Of course, there are numerous other sanctions and penalties that will accompany such a complaint if a person intentionally and fraudulently tries to convey property to hurt their spouse in an upcoming divorce.
