Strong Representation Through Your Divorce

Divorce falls within the exclusive division of the family division of the circuit court. Michigan has adopted a “no-fault” concept of divorce, which means that if one party wants a divorce, then both parties get a divorce. However, fault can play a part with regard to the division of property, parenting time and spousal support.

What You Should Know About Your Divorce

There are statutory waiting periods before a divorce can be finalized. A married couple with minor children must wait six months from the date it is filed before the divorce becomes final, although there are circumstances that would allow a court to grant a divorce sooner. If there are no minor children involved, then the statutory waiting period is 60 days.

No two divorces are the same, but all have some common elements. The initial pleadings required to file for a divorce include:

  • Summons
  • Complaint
  • Filing fee
  • Verified statement (If child support or spousal support is requested)

Other aspects of a divorce may include:

  • Ex parte orders
  • Motions for temporary relief
  • Business valuation/forensic accounting
  • Mediation
  • Arbitration

There are two types of divorce judgments:

  • Consent judgment
  • Default judgment
