Basics Of Business Division In Michigan

If you or your spouse started a business during your marriage, it is likely that the entire business will be treated as marital property during a divorce ― meaning both of you will be entitled to a portion of the entity. Indeed, even if only one of you ran the company while the other was a homemaker, the business could potentially still be considered marital property.

Conversely, if the business was started before you and your spouse were married, a court will typically consider the value of the business before marriage as separate property not subject to division. But, if the business grows during the marriage, any increase in value will be considered marital property and must be divided during divorce.

Our goal is to help you and your spouse consider arrangements that work best for all parties. We want to make your divorce a positive experience. We will carefully examine each issue that we must address and help you find a solution to each of your specific needs. Together, we will develop an approach that ensures a stable future for your business.
