What to do when you suspect your spouse is hiding assets

If you are heading for a divorce in Michigan, you and your spouse may already have trust issues.

They are often the party that takes care of the finances as well. At Vandervoort, Christ & Fisher, P.C., our experienced team of attorneys has the expertise and resources to help ensure clients receive an equitable settlement.
