WHAT DOES A NO-FAULT DIVORCE STATE MEAN?
In Michigan, you do not have to state a reason for filing for divorce other than irreconcilable differences. The judge will still take into account factors like abuse and neglect when reviewing the pleadings and determining the division of assets. Each spouse will need to obtain their own attorney. The Michigan Rules of Ethics prohibit representing two parties on opposite sides of the litigation.
Nor does Michigan have a requirement that you have to attend counseling before seeking a divorce. A divorce attorney can start the divorce proceedings on your behalf. You can still go through the divorce proceedings even if your spouse doesn’t want to get a divorce. After we serve your spouse, they have 21 days to respond. If your spouse doesn’t respond, then a default judgment will be entered in your favor.

WHAT IS ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION?
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is a great way to solve issues like spousal support, child support, and child custody outside the courtroom. Parties can stipulate going to ADR or a family law judge can order parties to resolve their issues in ADR. ADR is less adversarial than the litigation process. A trained mediator will lead the conservation and go back and forth between the parties. Your family law attorney will sit with you to ensure that your rights are protected throughout the process.
What Is Collaborative Law?
Collaborative law is a new development under Michigan family law. The whole idea is to assemble a professional team that helps the couple through tough aspects of divorce to solve financial and legal issues. You, your spouse, and your respective attorneys will sign an agreement not to go to court. Then, you will schedule a series of meetings to work together to figure out the terms of your divorce.
Your attorney will be there to advise and assist you in advocating for yourself and your wants and needs from the divorce. Collaborative law is a very unique Michigan legal tool that many people are taking advantage of. For collaborative law to work, both parties must agree to approach problems in good faith. One of our family law-skilled attorneys can discuss the collaborative process with you in more detail during your free case consultation.
