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.
A divorce is commenced by filing a complaint in the family division of the circuit court. MCL 552.6; MCR 3.201(C). Michigan is a no-fault state, meaning neither spouse is blamed for the breakup. No-fault lessens the potential damage to all parties caused by the process of divorce. If the marriage is "irretrievably broken", meaning there is no way to save the mar riage, then that is all that is required to obtain a divorce. Either spouse can file for the divorce.
However, there are three things that need to be proven in order to obtain a divorce in Michigan:
The marriage is valid
One party has been a Michigan resident for six months
The marriage is definitely broken
When there is minor children are involved and the parties are separated, the courts sometimes grant ex parte relief order providing for child custody, support, and parenting time.

How Long Does a Divorce Take?
The time that it takes to get a divorce will vary greatly from one situation to the next. In Michigan, for divorce with children – they can expect the process to last a minimum of six months, or 180 days. For divorces without children, a judgment of divorce can be entered 60 days from the date of filing. Keep in mine that if there is a fight between the parties (mean contested), the divorce with children or without children can take longer.
How Is Property Is Divided By The Courts In Michigan?
If the parties are not agreeing (mean there is a fight), Michigan courts have the power to divide all property (personal & real) that a married couple owns or in which either husband or wife has an ‘interest.’ This means that the circuit court in Michigan has the power to decide how to divide and distribute between the husband and wife any and all property and debt that either the husband or wife owns or possesses.

What to do before you file for divorce?
To obtain a divorce in Michigan, you or your spouse must be a resident of Michigan for a minimum of six months prior to filing for a divorce. Michigan is a no-fault state. It is not necessary to show that either one of the parties was at fault. The statutory basis for a divorce in Michigan is that there is no reasonable likelihood that the marriage can be preserved and, therefore, the marriage is irretrievably broken. Since state of Michigan is a no-fault divorce state, one does not have to prove that his or her spouse did something wrong to be granted a divorce. Before you file for a divorce in Michigan, understand that a divorce:
- will legally end your marriage forever
- may divide your property and debts
- provide for child support and if requested, spousal support
determine who will care for the children and be entitled to make decisions on their behalf.
If you're not sure that you are ready for a divorce, you may want to seek personal or marriage counseling. in the mean time make sure you have copies of any important documents that will be required in court or for future use. These may include tax returns, financial statements, pay stubs, mortgage papers, property deeds, appraisals, investment information, car title, stock, bond and other documnets. In addition, you need to save as much money as possible. You will need it for court fees and to re-establish yourself in your new life.
Who Should File for Divorce First?
No one should rush into a divorce. Talk to any experienced and intelligent Michigan divorce attorney and he or she will likely tell you exactly that unless there is a compelling reason to file immediately, such as a threat of physical harm that requires a PPO or the need to obtain court orders to protect custody of the children or property. If you are unhappy then file for divorce and get on with your life...if you are willing to wait, then do so but understand that your spouse may never choose to file.
