Understanding the Divorce Laws and Divorce Process in Michigan

Divorces are handled at the state level. If you are getting ready to end your marriage in Oakland County, it is useful to have an awareness of state law. Here are some key things to know about Michigan law if you are preparing for a divorce in Royal Oak: 

  • No-Fault Divorce Standard: Michigan operates under a no-fault divorce standard. You can end your marriage without litigating the reasons why it broke down. The divorce process itself is about setting yourself up for a better future.
  • A 180-Day Residency Rule: You should file within your county of residency. If you live in Royal Oak and are getting divorced, your case should be filed in Oakland County. There is a one hundred 80-day rule for filing for divorce in Michigan.
  • Equitable Distribution State: Marital property is split under Michigan’s equitable distribution standard. A 50/50 division is common—but is neither required nor guaranteed. Courts divide a couple’s marital property in an equitable (fair) distribution.
  • Best Interests of the Child: Custody and visitation issues are handled with reference to the best interests of the kid(s). A child’s best interests standard encompasses physical safety, emotional well-being, and social development.
