Dividing assets and debts in divorce is often a difficult process. Concerns over finances are not always the only source of friction when dividing marital property. Moreover, Michigan is an equitable division state. That means that courts do not necessarily split assets on an equal, or 50-50, basis. The Michigan court will look at your individual circumstances to determine what is fair and equitable distrubution in your unique situation.
At Selleck Legal, PLLC, in Plymouth, we do the hard work to analyze your unique circumstances and explain your legal options to divide one household, the household goods and household finances into two for the purposes of a workable and fair property settlement.

Understanding Marital Property An Property Division In The State Of Michigan
We take the time to evaluate the nature of your assets. While courts seek to divide property in a fair and equitable matter, not all property acquired is necessarily marital property. Property that you owned before the marriage and kept separate, as well as personal gifts or inheritances that are not commingled with marital assets may be excluded from the property division analysis. Bank accounts that are in only one spouse’s name are likely marital property — so long as the funds were earned during the marriage.
