Understanding Michigan Divorce
Divorce Basics
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
  Child custody
  Visitation/parenting time
  Child support

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.

Legal Separation

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.

  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
