Learn More About Divorce in Michigan

Michigan is a no-fault divorce state, which means that neither spouse needs to disclose a reason for the divorce. Only one party, the plaintiff (the spouse who files for divorce), must assert that he or she believes “there has been a breakdown of the marriage relationship to the extent that the objects of matrimony have been destroyed, and there remains no reasonable likelihood that the marriage can be preserved.” During a divorce, the court will decide issues involving child custody, parenting time, child support, spousal support, and property.

In Michigan, spouses can also file for a legal separation, which is known as separate maintenance. The procedure in a separate maintenance suit is like a divorce; however, neither spouse may remarry. The main benefit of a separate maintenance suit is that one spouse may be permitted to receive health benefits and health insurance from the other spouse. In a separate maintenance proceeding, the court will decide the same issues as in a divorce.
