Protect the Lifestyle You Created
Divorce can be messy which is why it’s important to choose a law firm that will work hard to protect the life you’ve worked so hard to create. Family law cases are highly personal and can easily become emotional, but the attorneys at ALL LAW, PLLC have the experience and expertise to reduce the tension between former spouses.
The Division of Property and Assets
The legal process of divorce can be confusing and stressful. Without a prenuptial agreement protecting your assets, you will have to divide those assets with your spouse. You may also need to agree on spousal support or child support if you have minor children. On top of the emotional distress that comes with divorce, there are many legal decisions. You need someone on your side to help you navigate the process. The attorneys at ALL LAW, PLLC will be there for you.
When property is involved, it is subject to equitable distribution, which means that it should be divided fairly and not necessarily evenly. If you are not able to come to an agreement, the court typically will get involved during this step and divide property based on the details of your matter.
Additionally, you will have to divide other assets, which typically include:
- Real Estate
- Personal Property (vehicles, furnishings)
- Retirement Accounts and/or other financial accounts
*Marital debts must be divided (can include mortgages, auto loans, credit card debt, taxes, etc.)
Spousal support/alimony is another factor in divorce proceedings, which might be awarded in various ways. In Michigan, the court considers several factors when deciding the amount to award, such as the length of the marriage, each party’s earnings, their level of education, work history, the ability to pay, and their prior standard of living.
