The Divorce Process in Bloomfield Hills

Just as the law governs when a marriage is valid, it also dictates how to legally end your marriage, which requires a Judgment of Divorce from the family court. To receive a Judgment of Divorce, one spouse must file a Complaint for Divorce in the county where one of you has lived for at least ten days. In most cases, one spouse must also have been a resident of Michigan for 180 days.

If you meet the residency requirement, you can file a complaint with the court to dissolve your marriage. You do not have to cite misconduct on the part of your spouse as grounds for divorce since Michigan is a no-fault divorce state. Your petition should be carefully prepared and include all of your requests, as well as accurate supporting information regarding your marriage and children. You should always have your divorce complaint drafted by a skilled divorce attorney. 

What Happens Next?

The next steps in your divorce case will depend on your specific situation. In every case, the court requires you and your spouse to resolve any of the following issues that apply:

If you agree from the start, you can proceed with an uncontested divorce, which is often a faster process. You should still have legal representation in an uncontested divorce to prevent complications or delays and to ensure your rights are fully protected. 

If you are your spouse disagree on one or more issues, there are options to help you agree out of court. Our attorneys can directly negotiate with your spouse’s attorney, or we can guide you through the mediation process. If you reach a resolution, you can submit it to the court for approval and a final divorce judgment. If you still cannot agree, it might be necessary to go to trial and have the court make the necessary determinations. You should always have an experienced litigator representing you in court.
