When there are assets of considerable value involved in a divorce, dividing up marital property presents tough challenges. Michigan law encourages couples to agree on property distribution, but this often isn’t possible in a high asset divorce. A judge must step in to make a fair and equitable arrangement, so the ensuing courtroom battle can be lengthy and expensive.
By definition, a high net worth divorce involves valuable assets; however, these cases are further complicated by how the assets are held and the Michigan legal requirements for dividing them fairly and equitably.
