A major aspect of every divorce is the division of property. Before dividing property, we must first determine what property there is in your marital estate. Our Detroit family law attorneys go through a careful discovery process to determine exactly what there is in the marital estate. Property may consist of savings, stocks, bonds, real estate, pensions, 401Ks, business entities, art, antiques, patents, furniture and furnishings, collectibles, time-shares, and numerous other items. Property can also include a business, professional practice or degree.
Once there has been a determination as to exactly what property there is in a marriage, Henry S. Gornbein and Delia A. Miller will sit down and advise you as to what division of property makes sense. In most cases, property is divided on an equal basis, but in some situations where there is inherited property, or gifts, or fault factors, then the court can come up with a very different property division.
Our role, and goal, is to create a property division and settlement that is tailor made for each of our clients on a case by case basis. Every situation is different, and we are prepared to advise you and answer questions based upon your particular needs.
