Michigan Property and Debt Division

When you file for divorce in Michigan, the attorney will decide which properties and debts are part of the marriage and which are not. 

Once that has been determined, they will be divided in a way that is equitable to both parties. 

The Divorce Process in Michigan

These are the jurisdictional requirements for a divorce in Michigan:

File The Complaint

The divorce process in Michigan begins as soon as you file the complaint and other pleadings. 

Service The Process

The person who files the complaint in Michigan is known as the plaintiff, and they must put the defendant on legal notice of the complaint for divorce. The defendant must be served, usually through an outside process server.

Receive An Answer to The Complaint

In Michigan, the defendant has 21 days after being served with the lawsuit to answer the complaint. The answer must specifically admit or deny each allegation.

Failure to answer the complaint in a timely manner has consequences such as loss of property, child custody, or other family law rights.

Discovery

Discovery is the formal process of exchanging information under oath between both parties. Both divorce attorneys will verify all facts and discover any new information. 

They may make use of the following: interrogatories; questions submitted under oath; subpoenas; court orders compelling the production of documents; depositions; and testimony taken under oath.

Court Appearance

The court appearance is generally called a status or case management conference. It includes a schedule of the dates required to conclude the case. In Michigan, when there are children in the picture, your first conference will be an Early Intervention Conference where issues such as custody and support and parenting time will be given dates when these family law issues should be resolved. 

Your Michigan family law attorney will be able to help you with this and every other step in your divorce process.
