Property Division and the Equitable Distribution of Marital Assets

One unique areas of focus within our divorce practice is our progressive and approach to marital property division, including, when necessary, the investigation and evaluation of:

  • Hidden assets
  • Investments such as stocks, bonds and securities
  • Family-owned businesses and other business assets or interests
  • Pensions, individual retirement accounts (IRAs) and other retirement assets
  • Inheritances and trusts

Michigan law follows the equitable division of marital property approach. This means that, no matter who is at fault in a divorce, the marital property and assets are divided equitably, and while equitable doesn’t always mean exactly one-half, the divorce court is not a punitive court and strives to divide estates fairly based on the unique circumstances present in each case.
