An Overview of Divorce in Michigan

If you are prepared for divorce in Sterlings Heights, it is essential that you know your rights, your responsibilities, and the legal process. Here are some of the most important things you should understand about needing your marriage in Michigan: 

  • No-Fault Divorce: Michigan has a no-fault divorce statute. Neither you nor your spouse needs to prove any type of misconduct to justify a divorce. You can get divorced on no-fault grounds. A breakdown of the marriage is sufficient.  
  • Six Months of State Residency: You can file for divorce in Michigan no matter where you got married. However, you must meet the 180-day (six-month) residency standard. You should file in the county of residence. 
  • Marital Property is Divided Equitably (Fairly): Splitting up property is one of the more challenging aspects of a divorce. In Michigan, a couple’s marital property is split in an equitable (fair) manner. There is no guarantee of a 50-50 division of assets. 
  • Best Interests of the Child Standard: Parents have to think about child custody and child visitation. If there is a dispute over custody or visitation, Michigan courts use the best interests of the child standard to reach a resolution.
