Keeping Focused On The Issues

You may not even realize some of the issues that could be points of contention throughout your divorce. If you do not have children, the bulk of the conversations that you will have will be focused on the specific assets that were acquired during the marriage. These include such items as:

  • Retirement accounts, 401(k)s, pensions and other investments earmarked for retirement
  • Houses and other vacation properties that you and your spouse may own
  • Stock options provided to you by your employer

Under Michigan law, marital property must be divided equitably. This means that the court will issue a ruling that it considers to be fair if it is asked to make a decision, which includes the division of property and any spousal support that it deems necessary. This does not mean that the order that they hand down is something that either side will appreciate.

As your lawyer, Henry will work with you to regain control over your divorce. He will help you consider a host of different proposals that could lead to an agreement outside of the courtroom. This is your opportunity to make an agreement that works for you.

You may be tempted to argue with your spouse over certain items just to make a point. Know that this could restrict your chance to find common ground. The sooner you focus on finding solutions, the sooner you can move on with your life.
