If your share in the C corporations are community property, then the judge can make these part of the divorce estate and you can potentially lose control of the corporations. Sometimes the court can even force the liquidation of the corporation in order to fairly divide the marital estate. If you need more detail, please let me know.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
