An uncontested divorce in Michigan can take as little as three to four months, however if there are financial matters to resolve or children then the process takes significantly longer, particularly if these matters cannot be agreed on easily.
Agreeing on financial settlements and arrangements for children are often why divorces take longer to conclude.
Other ways in which spouses can keep the divorce process amicable and avoid lengthy court proceedings include using collaborative law or mediation as a way of resolving any financial or children issues.
Divorce Process : Don't Make Costly Mistakes? Let Us help You! We're Affordable
You don’t need a reason such as adultery or abandonment, etc. to get a divorce in Michigan.
Michigan is a no-fault divorce state. This means it is not necessary to prove a spouse’s behavior is the reason for the divorce. In other word, No fault means a breakdown in the marriage to the extent that the objects of matrimony have been destroyed and there remains no reasonable likelihood the marriage can be preserved.
Are Assets Split 50/50 in Michigan Divorce?
If you’re getting divorced, don’t assume that everything will be divided 50:50. It may be the starting point for the courts, but one partner may end up with more, or less, than half. Any property acquired during your marriage will be considered marital (except property acquired by gift or inheritance to only one spouse).
Michigan is an equitable distribution state which means that, in the event of a divorce, marital property is not automatically split 50-50. Rather, equitable distribution is defined as the division of marital assets in a manner that is fair but not necessarily equal.
We can advise on a wide range of divorce & family law matters. It is important to obtain legal advice at the start of proceedings to decide on the best course of action to take.
Save Time, Money & Stress. We're Here For You!
Agreeing how you’re going to care for your kids with your ex partner - including where they will live now you are separated or divorced - can be a minefield. Currently, most family courts in Michigan decide to leave children with their mothers in the vast majority of divorce cases. Also, the family court can decide the arrangements for a child spending time with either parent or keeping in contact with them. We know, however, that court proceedings can be lengthy, expensive and stressful. There are a number of strategies that we can use to help improve the situation without having the court involve.
