Saving for a retirement is a lifetime goal that takes both time and effort. To ensure that you have sufficient assets to support yourself in your golden years, you and your spouse likely worked together to build up savings and investment accounts. If the two of you had children together, you may have chosen to split the labor, with one of you tending the home fires and the other earning income for the family's security.
Now that you are facing a divorce, you may be wondering what will become of your efforts. Is there enough to support the both of you? Does the law favor one spouse over another during property division? Are there guidelines in place in Michigan to help you protect your interests?
