We Handle It All (Affordable Fees)
Some family law attorneys feel most comfortable managing small divorces with minimal or no conflict. We can handle your uncontested divorce, but we are also experienced in the most complex contested divorces. We are committed to handling issues relating to high-conflict custody, relocation and removal, spousal support, complex business valuation and property division, and divorce cases other firms may not have experience with.
Contested Divorce Versus Uncontested Divorce
Divorces in Michigan are either contested or uncontested. Spouses that are able to agree on the terms of their divorce can elect an uncontested divorce, which may be less hassles, less expensive and less time-consuming than a contested divorce.
Contested divorces are more appropriate when the parties do not agree on most issues such as the custody of cow the property shall be divided. When we represent our clients, we fights for their rights and works to ensure that their rights are protected throughout the process.
Michigan's no-fault divorce laws allow spouses to unilaterally walk out on their families for any reason. Sometimes, divorces can get quite ugly, particularly when the couple fights for custody, alimony, spouse hiding assets, kidnapping children or property division. We have handled thousands of family law, uncontested and contested divorce cases in Michigan. We understand that issues that arise during a divorce can be traumatic, and our divorce lawyers are considered to be highly-skilled to handle all aspects of a divorce proceeding, including: alimony/maintenance, child support, custody, visitation, separation and distribution of property.

Do You Need a Reason to Get Divorced In Michigan?
No. Michigan No-Fault Divorce made breaking up easier to do, passing a no-fault divorce law that stands to reduce long, cutthroat court battles over who’s to blame when marriages fail. So, Infidelity? Mental cruelty? These, along with other fault-based grounds are not applicable in Michigan. The only grounds for dissolving a marriage that you need to show in court called "irreconcilable differences".
The Divorce Process
Either spouse may initiate a no-fault divorce by filing a complaint. The plaintiff spouse must stated in her/his compliant that the marriage is “forever broken” and there is no hope of reconciliation. The divorce itself is normally filed in the circuit court for the county where the defendant spouse lives. If the defendant is not a Michigan resident, however, the plaintiff may file in his or her own home county.
No Fault Divorce and the Division of Property
In Michigan, division of marital property follows the rule of equitable distribution. In very general terms, marital property describes either assets acquired during the marriage from earnings during the marriage, or assets acquired because separate property was transmuted or commingled.
Marital property must be divided in all Michigan divorces. In order to divide marital property, a court must identify what marital property exists, classify the property as either marital or separate, value the assets, and divide the property equitably. In determining what is marital property, the details (and documents) matter a great deal.
