In a divorce, disagreements about the division of marital assets can lengthen the marriage dissolution process and cost both sides money. At Dawson Family Law, PLLC in Sterling Heights, I am a Michigan attorney with more than 40 years of experience representing clients in equitable distribution matters and other aspects of matrimonial litigation. When divorcing spouses cannot agree on a division of assets and debts, state law requires courts to determine what is fair based on statutory standards and possibly other factors, but the division isn’t necessarily an even one. That’s why it’s important to retain an attorney who takes the time to assess how a judge might evaluate your circumstances. Once you’ve determined how to proceed, I’ll press for a resolution that fulfills your objectives.
Whether you’re talking about substantial holdings or items that have great personal value, assets can be hidden quickly. Once you and your spouse have decided to divorce, it’s essential you retain qualified counsel to avert problems that can reduce your share of the marital estate. In a free initial consultation, I will go over issues such as:
Whether your marital estate includes homes, cars, investments, retirement accounts, shares of a business or other sophisticated assets, I will develop a thorough, accurate valuation and advocate for a property allocation that is truly equitable.
