The Complexities Of Property Division During Divorce

Individuals often bring a significant amount of money and assets into a marriage. These are known as non-marital assets. When going through a divorce, it will obviously be a great concern for you regarding what will happen with these assets. On the other hand, couples will also accumulate finances and belongings through the course of the marriage. These are known as marital assets.

Under Michigan law, courts distinguish between the two, and generally only the marital assets face division during the divorce process. In some circumstances, there are exceptions, however. For example, it is sometimes possible for courts to do what is called invasion of separate assets if one particular spouse is not meeting their obligations concerning payments of child support or alimony.
