Michigan residents will agree that every divorce has a financial side to it. A divorce usually involves issues including alimony, property division and sometimes child support.
Bitterness between the spouses can ensue when high assets become involved in a divorce. Michigan is an equitable distribution state, where marital property is divided between the husband and wife in a just and fair manner. However, equitable may not necessarily mean equal or half shares between spouses.
It is important for a spouse to protect his or her interests to ensure a sound financial future. An experienced attorney's help could mean the difference between what should have been received versus what was actually received.
