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.
We understand the importance of getting out of a bad situation without incurring lot of cost. That’s why we offer low cost divorce solutions to clients in metro Detroit areas.
Each situation is different and the cost and time frame of obtaining a divorce is dependent upon a few factors:
Is the divorce uncontested?
Will your spouse accept service?

Don't Overpay For a Divorce
Over 20 Years of Family Law Practice
How do I start a divorce?
If you have lived in Michigan for at least 180 days you can file for divorce. You can file for divorce in the county where you live or the county where your spouse lives, if different. If you used to live in Michigan but moved away, you must live here again for at least 180 days before you can file here.
Divorce in Michigan: Divorce in Michigan can be contested or uncontested
An uncontested divorce occurs when: (a) there are no disputes or disagreements between you and your spouse over any financial or divorce-related issues (i.e., child custody and support, division of marital property or spousal support); and (b) your spouse either agrees to the divorce or fails to to file a formal response with divorce court. More clear that all factors, i.e. marital home, assets, debts, custody, visitation, alimony, child support, even the family dog, have been amicably resolved between the Husband and Wife.
Contested divorces can take more than 6 months to be resolved. In this situation, spouses disagree about any of these things:
Whether to get a divorce
Where the children should live
Where a companion animal should live
How much child support should be paid
How property should be split up
Who should pay certain debts
Whether "maintenance" or spousal support (alimony) should be paid
High Net Worth Divorce
Divorce cases can become incredibly complex when one or both spouses earn a large income or own valuable property. We work with spouses who have a high net worth to help them fully understand the issues involved in identifying and dividing marital assets (including real estate, vehicles, valuable jewelry or artwork, investment accounts, and inheritances) and determining the correct amount of spousal support (alimony) and child support.
