What Women Need to Know About Divorce in Michigan

Michigan is a no-fault state which means that it doesn’t matter who’s to blame for the failing marriage. Our lawyers at The Law Firm of Victoria work with women to establish that the relationship is over and there is no possibility of reconciliation. While fault doesn’t matter in terms of filing, there are a few instances where it is relevant:

  • When determining child custody arrangements
  • When determining if spousal support is appropriate and the amount to be provided
  • When determining property division between the divorcing parties
  • Michigan courts have jurisdiction over divorce proceedings when both parties have lived in the state for a minimum of 180 days prior to filing for marriage dissolution. They must also live the county where the complaint is filed for 10 days immediately prior to filing. Whether or not minor children are involved affects how long it takes to finalize a divorce in Michigan. For couples without minor children judgement takes place any time after the 60 days following the filing date. Couples with minor children cannot receive judgement until six months after the filing date.
