The Process of Getting Divorced in Michigan

​In order to file for a divorce in Michigan, residency requirements must be met for the court to accept the case. The requirements are as follows:

  1)  One of the spouses must have lived in Michigan for at least 180 days before the divorce is filed
  2)  The person seeking the divorce (the plaintiff) must file in the county in which he/she, or his/her spouse (the defendant), has lived in for the last 10 days.

In Michigan, all divorce actions have at least six steps that are as follows:

1. Filing of the divorce action in the circuit court t;
2. Serving your spouse with the required divorce papers (usually 90 days);
3. File proof of service with court 
4. If no answer is filed with court after the spouse was served with the divorce papers, you need to file for default and request default judgment;
5. If your spouse filed an answer but both parties reach an agreement as to all issues, they can submit a consent judgment of divorce and appear in court for the judge to sign ;
6. Observing the days waiting period;
7. Appearing for a court hearing.
8. Get divorce judgment. 

In most cases a divorce can be difficult to handle without lawyers, such as:

  If you and your spouse cannot agree about custody and visitation of the children;
  If you are unsure of your spouse’s assets (real or personal property) 
  If you feel uncomfortable handling the divorce without representation
  If you and your spouse cannot agree to the final divorce
  If you are unsure of your legal rights
  If you feel too emotional to handle the pressure of making the legal decisions alone

Every divorce is different, but all divorces will generally include some or all of the following six issues:

  Legal custody and parenting time (visitation) with the couple's minor children
  Child support for the couple's minor children
  Division of marital property
  Division of marital debts
  Spousal maintenance (alimony)
  Allocation of attorney's fees
