New Massachusetts Homestead Law is Now in Effect

Mark Lichtenstein Mark Lichtenstein

Homesteads are an affordable way for many of our clients to obtain significant protection from certain creditors.  On December 16, 2010, the governor of Massachusetts signed into law the most extensive changes to our homestead law in more than a generation.  The effective date of the new law was March 16, 2011.

If you are not sure whether you have a Declared Homestead, whether you qualify, or whether you should consider changes to your existing Homestead, we would be glad to discuss with you your specific circumstances.
