What You Need To Know About Divorce in Michigan
Moreover, you must file for divorce within the state of Michigan and within the Michigan County where you and your spouse reside – although you are free to file for divorce in the county where your spouse resides if you do not live together. Plus, you must have lived in Michigan for at least six months to file for divorce in Michigan.
Once you file for divorce and if you have no children from your current marriage, you must wait 60 days before the divorce is finalized. However, if you have children from the current marriage, you will have to wait at least 6 months until the divorce is finalized – keep in mind if there’s a battle over custody and property, the timeframe can take much longer.

“HE’S A BAD MAN, when it comes to that court room. I had a very tough case which would had made me guilty from he say, she say. But the evidence just wasn’t there. Chris worked hard from the time I contacted him until my verdict day to stress the issue of reasonable doubt. He did all that along with having a new born son at home which took away from his sleep. On March 15th, 2018 I was found NOT GUILTY of 2 felonies and 1 misdemeanor.”
