What does Michigan say about filing for Divorce?

When can you file for Divorce in Michigan? Michigan is a no-fault divorce state, which means you do not have to prove fault to obtain a divorce. You can obtain a divorce even if the other party does not want a divorce.

You must prove specifically that “there has been a breakdown in your marital relationship to the extent that the objects of matrimony have been destroyed, and there remains no reasonable likelihood that the marriage can be preserved.”

This can mean many different things to different people. A marriage can breakdown for the reason that the parties have grown apart or that one party doesn’t approve of the other spouse’s behavior. If the marriage has been destroyed to the extent that one person can no longer remain in the marriage, that party should seek a divorce attorney immediately.
