How is property divided in Michigan?

Michigan is an “equitable distribution” state, meaning that all marital property acquired during the marriage is subject to division. Property brought into the marriage that a person had before is generally not subject to division in a divorce, however, commingling of money and long term marriages can greatly complicate this issue. In addition, most divorcing spouses set out who will pay what debts as part of their marital settlement agreement during the divorce process, and close all of their joint accounts.
