The Very First Step: Do You Have Grounds For Michigan Divorce?
In Michigan there is only one ground for divorce and that is irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. This can be proved in one way:
Tell the divorce judge that there has been a break down of the marriage relationship to the extent that the bonds of matrimony cannot be preserved.
What Happens To Your Property?
During divorce one of the most important issues for you and your partner need to discuss are splitting up the property (house, car, IRA.....etc) and finances and how to make the right arrangements for your children’s future care. Gifts or inheritance received during marriage are not matrimonial property, but if they are used, for example, to buy a house, the house is matrimonial property. The most important and most commonly applied principle for dividing matrimonial property is that it is to be divided ‘fairly’ between the parties. This does not necessarily mean equally, but that is the starting point. We can help you with these problems.
What About Spousal Support, Otherwise Known As Alimony?
The court may order one of you to pay spousal support. In order to determine if post-divorce spousal support will be granted, the family judge takes the following factors into consideration before granting or denying spousal support, like:
How long you have been married.
Your age and your spouse’s age.
Your individual health status - is one or both of you very ill or disabled?
Each party’s income and earning capacity.
If one of you was hit by unemployment or maybe taking care of children at home and out of the workforce.
If one of you helped advance the other’s career by supporting while one of you went to college or got special licensing, etc.
If there is a domestic violence issue.
And other factors.
