FACTORS A JUDGE WILL CONSIDER IN A DIVISION OF
Judges in Michigan are required to divide marital property equitably, which means in a fair and just manner. There are no set rules for property division and judges are given a certain amount of discretion when dividing assets. However, there are certain factors that will have an impact on the property division decision.
Length of the Marriage
While a short marriage will not make an asset non-marital, it may decrease a spouse's share. For example, if a spouse earned non-marital property during a short marriage and the other spouse did not help contribute to its creation, it may be awarded entirely to the first spouse.
Needs of Each Spouse
If a spouse needs a specific standard of living due to their age or physical or mental health, they are likely to receive a greater share of the assets.
Judges may also consider factors such as whether the couple had a prenuptial agreement or what the value of non-marital assets are, as well as other factors important to the specific situation.
