Michigan No-Fault Divorce Law
Michigan is a no-fault state. That means neither party can legally place blame or claim fault. Despite the no-fault distinction, Michigan divorce cases are not without great emotion.

Whatever the case, several considerations must be taken under advisement in Michigan. These standard areas of interest include support, property, debts, medical coverage, education expenses, and custody. In these areas, Friedman Law Firm is experienced and adept.
Requirements For Filing For Divorce In Michigan
Did you know? A party filing for divorce must also have resided in Michigan for the previous 180 days or 6 months and documentation is required. We can help with that, too. From gathering paperwork to projecting future financial needs, our small, dedicated team will help guide you through this delicate process.
Judgment Of Divorce
In many instances, parties are able to come to a settlement. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, your county’s circuit court determines the final terms of the dissolution. The conditions are laid out in a Judgment of Divorce (JOD). To arrive at the determination, many aspects of the marriage are reviewed, including each person’s actions and acquisitions. Certain aspects of the future will also be considered, such what is required for the continued well being of any children involved.
