Division of Assets

Pensions Funds · Real Estate · Stocks · Cash Businesses · Hidden Assets

Surprisingly, dividing marital property in divorce is often more contentious than child custody and parenting time. Under Michigan law, property (including debt) must be characterized as either marital property or separate property. Properly characterizing property, assets and debts requires skill and experience to help ensure that your goals for the division of property are effectively pursued.

If you are considering filing for divorce, schedule a free initial consultation with an attorney at the Law Offices of Harris & Literski in Brighton. Our attorneys have more than 100 combined years of experience protecting our clients' financial interests in divorces. We are skilled negotiators and litigators who seek common-sense solutions to the most complex problems.

We Uncover Hidden Financial Assets

It is a common practice for the moneyed spouse to deny assets or hide investments. We are experienced financial investigators who know how to conduct a thorough investigation that is capable of finding the full value of the marital estate.

Experience working in the local courts is the best way to learn how those courts actually apply the law on a particular issue. Since 1985, we have represented clients in courts in Livingston County, Washtenaw County and Oakland County, Michigan.

Does It Matter Whose Fault It Was?

In Michigan, fault for the divorce is taken into consideration when deciding property settlements. If the behavior of one party is found to be the primary reason for the divorce, the judge may approve an unequal distribution of property. We understand how to effectively present evidence that can help our clients achieve their goals.
