While every state is slightly different, in Michigan at least one spouse has to testify that “there has been a breakdown of the marriage relationship to the extent that the objects of matrimony have been destroyed and there remains no reasonable likelihood that the marriage can be preserved.” Essentially, this amounts to a public statement that the marriage is over. But, obviously, there’s more to it than that.
Even in the most straightforward cases - including when all parties are amicable - you will still want to protect your interests by retaining a lawyer.

Child custody is one of the most important considerations in a divorce case. After all, time with your children is among your most valuable assets as a parent. The Michigan Child Custody Act presumes that it is going to be in the best interest of any children involved to have a solid relationship with both parents. So, if at all possible, that is the end goal here.

At Ryan & Lynch Law, we always seek to minimize the emotional and financial difficulties of divorce for our clients. We will work tirelessly to ensure that you get the parenting time or custody you deserve following the dissolution of your marriage.
In Michigan, alimony, or spousal support, is a court-mandated level of financial support for a former spouse in the aftermath of a divorce. Alimony determinations can vary considerably on a case-by-case basis. The court must decide whether to award alimony at all, if so, how much alimony to award, and for how long these alimony payments must continue. The same holds true for child support once the issue of custody has been decided.
