How Do I Get Divorced In Michigan?

In order to file for divorce in Michigan, you or your spouse needs to have lived in Michigan for 180 days preceding your filing date, and 10 days before filing in the county you wish to file in. Michigan’s 10-day county rule has an exception: If your spouse was born in another country, you and your spouse have a child under the age of 18, and a judge believes your child is at risk for being taken out of the country.

What Are Grounds For Divorce?

When filing for divorce in Michigan, not only do you have to meet the residency requirements but you have to state a legally accepted ground for divorce. The ground for divorce in Michigan is an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. Under that ground, a filer must claim that there “there has been a breakdown in the marriage relationship to the extent that the objects of matrimony have been destroyed and there remains no reasonable likelihood that the marriage can be preserved.”
