Michigan Grounds for Divorce
Unlike other states, Michigan is a purely no-fault divorce state which
means you don’t have to prove that your spouse committed any type
of marital misconduct that caused the breakdown of your marriage. Instead,
you simply need to testify that:
- Your marriage is irretrievably broken
- There is no chance for reconciliation
You can file for a divorce, even if your spouse is opposed to it. As long
as you can testify to the above requirements.
If you’re seeking a more favorable custody or support outcome because
your marriage broke down as a result of something your spouse did, then
you can present this to the judge and they may take it into consideration.
