Michigan Divorce Requirements

In order to qualify for a Michigan divorce, one of the spouses must have resided in Michigan for at least 180 days prior to filing. In addition, one spouse must be in the county where the petition is filed for the 10 days immediately prior to the filing date. There is an exception to the 10-day rule if the following requirements are met:

  • The non-filing spouse, or defendant, was not born in the United States or holds a passport for a non-US country;
  • The parties in the divorce have at least one minor child; and
  • There is reliable information that would lead the court to believe there is a risk of the minor children being removed from the country and held in another country by the non-filing spouse.
