Speak with an attorney
Because of the personal nature of Michigan divorce and family law, choosing the right lawyer is important. You want an attorney who understands both the financial and emotional side of your case: someone you can trust to guide you through your divorce and protect what is most important to you. Call us for a consultation so you can see for yourself whether speaks with our law firm is the right firm for you.
Contested divorces can take more than 6 months to be resolved. In this situation, spouses disagree about any of these things:
Whether to get a divorce
Where the children should live
Where a companion animal should live
How much child support should be paid
How property should be split up
Who should pay certain debts
Whether "maintenance" or spousal support (alimony) should be paid
An uncontested divorce occurs when: (a) there are no disputes or disagreements between you and your spouse over any financial or divorce-related issues (i.e., child custody and support, division of marital property or spousal support); and (b) your spouse either agrees to the divorce or fails to to file a formal response with divorce court. More clear that all factors, i.e. marital home, assets, debts, custody, visitation, alimony, child support, even the family dog, have been amicably resolved between the Husband and Wife.
High Net Worth Divorce
Divorce cases can become incredibly complex when one or both spouses earn a large income or own valuable property. We work with spouses who have a high net worth to help them fully understand the issues involved in identifying and dividing marital assets (including real estate, vehicles, valuable jewelry or artwork, investment accounts, and inheritances) and determining the correct amount of spousal support (alimony) and child support.
We Will Protect Your Rights During Divorce in Both Uncontested or Contested Cases.

Do I need a legal reason to get a divorce in Michigan? No
Michigan has “no fault” divorce which means you don’t need to give a specific reason to get a divorce.The only reason you need is that you and your spouse cannot get along, and you see no way of settling your problems. The law calls this "irreconcilable differences".
How do I start a divorce?
If you have lived in Michigan for at least 180 days you can file for divorce. You can file for divorce in the county where you live or the county where your spouse lives, if different. If you used to live in Michigan but moved away, you must live here again for at least 180 days before you can file here.
Do Not Move Out if You Have Children
If you moved out of your home, move back in as soon as possible. Once you move out, you may ruin your chance at custody.
Tell your spouse that he or she is welcome to leave the home, but the children must stay.
Ways to Protect Yourself Financially
Cancel Joint Credit Cards
Safeguard Joint Bank Accounts
Cut Back on Expenses
Don’t Contribute to Your Retirement Accounts
Ways to Protect Yourself Personally
Do Not Sign ANY Documents without properly consulting a divorce professional. Many people make the mistake of signing papers that later cause property and custody battles to be decided against them. Some documents cannot be modified by an attorney later.
If your spouse asks for your signature, respond politely by saying your attorney has told you not to sign anything until he or she reviews the document.
