When many people get married, they probably don't think about some of the future issues they may have to deal with if their marriage comes to an end. From child custody and support to property division, divorce can be very difficult. However, the division of property can be particularly stressful and emotional for those who are going through a divorce, especially if they aren't prepared. At the law offices of Lorrie J. Zahodnic, we work hard to help ensure that our clients in Clinton Township and other parts of Michigan receive their fair share of property after separating from their spouse.
When it comes to property division, there are a number of considerations that you should keep in mind. For example, it is important to understand the difference between marital property, which will be divided by the court, and non-marital property, which is separate. Assets which were acquired during the course of a marriage (such as retirement accounts, real estate and household items) are considered marital property and subject to division. Courts will take various factors into consideration when deciding how property should be divided, including the length of a marriage, the earning abilities of each party and the value of separate property, to name a few.
If you are concerned about property division or any divorce-related legal issues, it is important to thoroughly analyze your situation and identify the best course of action.
