I'm sorry to hear about your situation.

Just to clarify, your wife is filing for a divorce currently? What year did she leave the marriage? Thanks!

October 26,2017.Sadly after our 13th wedding anniversary/32 year of involvement.
Family Lawyer: Nisha Jones,

I'm sorry to hear that.

What specifically is your question for me today? Are you wondering about a potential division of assets?

Unfrotunately spousal abandonment is not really something that Michigan courts take into consideration in a divorce.
