Divorce Law

Michigan is what is known as a no-fault divorce state, which means that neither party is required to state specific grounds for divorce other than to allege that irreconcilable differences have caused a breakdown of the marriage relationship to the extent that the objects of marriage have been destroyed and there remains no reasonable likelihood that it can be preserved. (MCL 552.6)

To file for divorce in Michigan, at least one of the parties must have resided in the state for 180 days immediately preceding the filing of the Complaint and at least one of the parties must have resided in the county in which the Complaint was filed for a minimum of 10 days prior to filing.
