Marital Asset Division In Michigan Is Best Left To The Professionals
Dividing marital property during divorce can be an intricate process. This is especially true if you have significant assets subject to a fair division. Deciding how to fairly allocate houses, art collections, closely held businesses, deferred compensation, rental property, retirement and pension plans, brokerage accounts, restricted stock, stock options, and other valuable assets can be challenging, even under the best of circumstances. In a contentious divorce, asset division becomes even more complex. Working with an experienced asset division lawyer will make this convoluted process less intimidating.
Our legal team Cheltenham Law, PLLC, can help you handle everything from start to finish, including creating a complete inventory of marital property, accurate valuations and even locating hidden assets. We work closely with you to ensure that you receive an equitable division of the assets.
Protect Your Assets
You may have come into your marriage with many assets, such as your car, jewelry, furniture or your professional practice. If that is true, then you have a right to maintain that property as “premarital” property; meaning it may not be subject to division of marital property in your divorce. You may also have separate property such as an inheritance or personal injury lump sum subject to your name alone during your marriage which may also be separate from the marital property inventory.
At Cheltenham Law, PLLC, our divorce lawyers have the training, skills and experience in reviewing assets and carefully determining what is premarital property or separate property that would not be subject to the inventory of marital assets. By tracing back the origination of the asset and proving that the asset has not been subject to co-mingling with marital assets, we have been successful in arguing that the property is separate property.
