Welcome to JustAnswer,

So sorry to hear of this dilemma. If my answer is not clear to you, please ask me for clarification by using the reply button.

Tenancy by the Entireties is a legal doctrine holding that each spouse has an undividable right to use the whole property. Tenancy by the Entireties is recognized in Michigan. Property owned by married couples in Michigan as "tenants by the entireties" is exempt from liens or judgments against an individual spouse.
