Helping You With All Issues in Your Divorce

If you have financial support and property division issues, we will handle your case professionally and with compassion. If you or your spouse is contesting the value of marital assets, our accountants can analyze the value of pensions, retirement accounts and other assets in order to determine asset pension division and other alimony issues.

If you are a spouse who needs alimony during and after the divorce proceeding, we will make sure your needs are met and your interests are protected. If your children need support, we will make sure their needs are taken care of. If you believe you are paying too much in child support, and wish to have more time with your children, we will work on devising a fair and equitable arrangement.

The only grounds for dissolving a marriage that you need to show in court called "irreconcilable differences".

Even we have no-fault divorce, our attorneys can help in situations where neither party is at fault for the divorce, division of property can be determine for any number of reasons including Infidelity, mental cruelty and spousal abuse. There are other factors including:

The Divorce Process

Either spouse may initiate a no-fault divorce by filing a complaint. The plaintiff spouse must stated in her/his compliant that the marriage is “forever broken” and there is no hope of reconciliation. The divorce itself is normally filed in the circuit court for the county where the defendant spouse lives. If the defendant is not a Michigan resident, however, the plaintiff may file in his or her own home county.

High Level Experience in High Asset Divorce

In Michigan, division of marital property follows the rule of equitable distribution. In very general terms, marital property describes either assets acquired during the marriage from earnings during the marriage, or assets acquired because separate property was transmuted or commingled.

Marital property must be divided in all Michigan divorces. In order to divide marital property, a court must identify what marital property exists, classify the property as either marital or separate, value the assets, and divide the property equitably. In determining what is marital property, the details (and documents) matter a great deal.

In Michigan, there are two main types of divorce. Legally speaking, either contested or uncontested. 
1. An uncontested divorce occurs when: (a) there are no disputes or disagreements between you and your spouse over any financial or divorce-related issues (i.e., child custody and support, division of marital property or spousal support); and (b) your spouse either agrees to the divorce or fails to to file a formal response with divorce court. More clear that all factors, i.e. marital home, assets, debts, custody, visitation, alimony, child support, even the family dog, have been amicably resolved between the Husband and Wife. 

In an uncontested action, the spouses go separate ways without a trial and in some cases, without even appearing in court.

An uncontested divorce will resolve matters much more quickly. Usually the entire process, from initial filing until a circuit judge's singing a divorce judgment is less than four months if there is no children. A contested divorce can be from several months to a year or longer.

2. Contested divorce means you and your spouse could not agree on the terms of the divorce, or even whether there should be a divorce at all. Some examples of issues that must be resolved prior to the court granting a divorce in Michigan are child custody, child support, spousal maintenance, division of property and debts.

In contested divorces, a judge will have the final say in all terms of the divorce, and will decide:

  Child custody
  Spousal maintenance
  Child support
  Property division
  Visitation
  Division of assets
