Equitable Distribution is a process for dispersing property acquired by or owned by the spouses upon the termination of marriage.
In the state of Michigan, all property acquired and income earned during a marriage is subject to equitable distribution. When a marriage is dissolved, the courts must make decisions regarding the distribution of property. There are a number of factors that the court must consider before the property is divided.
In some cases property acquired prior to the marriage can be treated as if it was marital property. In other cases the Judge can even invade pre-marital property. An experienced divorce attorney is the key when these issue come up.
