What does “directly traceable” mean?

Michigan is a no fault state; meaning that, if you ask the County for divorce, you will have that request granted. You do not have to allege that your spouse has done anything wrong. You must however, allege that there has been a breakdown in the marriage.

NOTICE: None of these questions and answers constitute legal advice. To obtain legal advice, consult with an attorney. This is especially important in divorce and family law matters, in which outcomes are often peculiar to the particular facts and circumstances of the case.

Question: What does “directly traceable” mean?

Answer: “Directly traceable” is not synonymous with “attributable.” When
marital and nonmarital funds are commingled, no specific sum of
money used to acquire property or reduce an indebtedness on any
property can be directly traced to any source. This inability to trace
property acquired during the marriage directly to a nonmarital
source simply means that all property so acquired is marital
property.
