Wilson Law

Property Division

In disputes regarding property division during divorce proceedings, Michigan law requires that property be divided equitably. Generally, marital property and marital debt are divided equally between the parties. Courts are able to take certain factors into consideration to deviate from an equal division. These factors include:

  • Duration of marriage
  • Contributions to the marital estate
  • Age
  • Health
  • Life status
  • Necessities and circumstances
  • Earning ability
  • Past relations or fault in causing the divorce
  • Other general principles of equity

Property settlements are not modifiable in Michigan, which makes it even that much more important to have an experienced attorney advocating for your rights during a divorce. Wilson Law Office, P.C. has that experience and knowledge to vigorously fight for what is rightfully yours.
