Michigan Grounds for Divorce

In Michigan, couples can file for divorce under no fault grounds. The Michigan divorce court will grant a no fault divorce if both spouses agree or one spouse alleges there has been a breakdown in the marriage to the point that the marriage has been destroyed. There should remain no reasonable likelihood that the marriage can be preserved.

During the divorce process, the couple will need to follow the Michigan divorce waiting periods to further confirm that reconciliation isn't possible. The couple will also need to meet the Michigan residency requirement before filing for divorce.
