Southfield Property Division Lawyers

Experienced Business Valuation Lawyers in Detroit, Michigan

Without accurate asset evaluation, it is impossible for a divorce settlement to include fair terms for property division. However, during the recent economic turmoil, property values have dropped significantly. As a result of this instability, it is now more difficult than ever to calculate the true value of your assets.

At Salinger and Associates, we work with trusted financial experts to give an honest assessment of all assets. Our attorneys both have more than 20 years of legal experience in asset evaluation matters. We take a practical, hands-on approach to solving legal problems, and we have a longstanding reputation for honesty and integrity in the practice of law.

If you would like to schedule an initial consultation, call us today at 248-569-5120 or contact our offices online any time. We are ready to help.

We Know How to Solve Your Problem

We help individuals prove the value of their spouse's assets, and we help individuals show that their assets may not be as valuable as their spouse has claimed. We know which documents and records to review, and we know how to subpoena them in case your spouse is not forthcoming.

In the course of marital property division, our lawyers provide services involving:

  • Business valuation
  • Real estate and property appraisals
  • Pension and 401(k) divisions
  • Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDROs)
  • Eligible Domestic Relations Orders (EDROs)
  • Stock portfolio valuations

In addition to legal services pertaining to traditional marriage and divorce, our attorneys also provide legal counsel in situations involving the termination of domestic partnerships.

Marital Property and Equitable Distribution in Michigan

Marital property consists of any property (with a few exceptions) that either spouse acquired during the marriage. According to the property division laws of Michigan, all marital property must be distributed equitably at the time of the divorce.

Equitable distribution is not necessarily a 50/50 split. It essentially means that each spouse receives what the court determines they deserve. This can be based on the length of the marriage, the contributions each party made to the marriage, the cause of the divorce and many other factors. You should speak with a lawyer to learn more.
