Understanding Michigan Divorce
Must Live in Michigan
Under Michigan law, to get divorced, one of the spouses must be living in Michigan for at least 180 days before starting the case. Getting divorced is a lot more complicated than getting married, and it can take several months before your divorce is final.
In Michigan the only requirement for divorce, is that the marriage be “irretrievably broken.”
Michigan is considered a “no fault state” which means that the reasons for the divorce are not important with regards to actually getting divorced, even though those reasons may affect other issues within the divorce.
Resolving issues during divorce
Before a divorce may be granted, five basic issues typically must be resolved. They are:
Alimony/ or support for the spouse
Property and debt division
If the spouses can reach agreement on these issues, then the divorce is uncontested. If, however, the spouses cannot agree, the divorce is contested. Any issues that have not been resolved by agreement will be tried before a judge.
There is no "legal separation," in Michigan. You do not have to get court permission to live apart from your spouse. It is legal to live apart from your spouse.

Spousal maintenance: During your divorce case, we help establish a spousal maintenance plan fair under Michigan law and beneficial for both parties.
Property division: As family law attorneys, one of our most important responsibilities in the division of marital assets is to determine what actually constitutes marital property. Since courts have no authority over non-marital property, it helps in your divorce proceedings for you to prove that as much of your property as possible does not fit under the court definition of a marital asset. The law defines marital property as all property except:
Any property acquired as a gift or through an inheritance
Any property acquired by a judgment awarded to either spouse
Any property acquired in exchange for other property acquired either before the marriage or by gifts, legacy or inheritance
Any property acquired before the marriage
