What You Need To Know About Divorce in Michigan
Michigan is a no-fault divorce state and allows divorce in cases where the marriage is irretrievably damaged. No fault does not mean that fault is irrelevant, however, as the court may establish fault to determine property division, child custody, and spousal support. You may file for divorce in Michigan if you or your spouse has lived in the state for at least 180 days and must do so in a county where you have lived for at least 10 days prior to the filing.
The state requires a waiting period before the divorce is finalized. This is 60 days for couples without minor children and six months for couples who have minor children.
