    "The price was so good, I had to do my divorce with you. I didn't want to pay a lawyer $800 dollars to do an uncontested divorce. We already knew what we wanted on how to divide up the house. I'm grateful I found you when I did. Going through the stress of a divorce is hard enough without having financial stress as well. Thank you so much."

Michigan Grounds for Divorce
Irretrievable breakdown of the marriage

 

NOTE: Regardless of the reason of the breakdown of the marriage or the reason for filing for divorce in Michigan, the Divorce Do It Yourself Service will do divorces on an "Agreed" basis or a “Default” basis.

  • An Agreed Divorce , defined by Michigan divorce guidelines and Michigan divorce laws, is a scenario where the spouses agree on the terms of the divorce such as Michigan property distribution, Michigan child support, or Michigan child custody. Most of our clients (75%) prefer the Agreed Divorce method and both spouses sign the divorce papers and are agreed to the terms of divorce.

  • A Default Divorce , from the Michigan divorce guidelines and MI divorce laws, is a divorce where your spouse doesn’t sign the Michigan Divorce paperwork or Michigan divorce forms. They simply doesn’t do anything at all… with the divorce. They simply default on their side of the case. And YOU who filed FIRST get whatever you ask for in the originally filed divorce forms. NICE

Missing Spouse in Michigan
If your spouse is missing and you cannot locate him/her, after diligent effort, you may still get a divorce in Michigan. It may involve the small expense of running a newspaper ad or something similar. We help you through the process with our FREE Missing Spouse Package.

Your Michigan Child Custody Laws
Definitions: (source: divorce process in Michigan and MI divorce laws)

  • Visitation is the proposed plan the spouses have on WHERE the children will live and WHEN the children will see each parent
  • Legal Custody is the ability to make decisions in the life of the children. Such as, where the children will attend school and which church they will go to.
  • Physical Custody Is the choice of the location of where the children will live and which spouse they live with.

Michigan Child Custody in a shared arrangement, is the usual preferred method of our Michigan divorce clients. If a sole-custody arrangement is what you would like, then there is usually a very good reason for it. Usually the financial status of a parent is not usually considered for allocating any parental rights and responsibilities. Shared Custody or Sole Child Custody is to be awarded according to the “best interests of the child.” That is the gold standard.

Michigan Child Support Laws
If the parents are unable to agree to an amount of child support, there are guidelines that determine the amount of support based on the Michigan Child Support Guidelines. The guideline amount is presumed to arrive at an amount of support that is in the child's best interest. But, most divorcing spouses agree to a figure on their own, that will work just fine. Also, in most situations, -0- Child Support is OK if both spouses are working and can manage. This is also true for a Legal Separation in Michigan.

Michigan Divorce Laws for Property Distribution
In an Uncontested "Agreed Divorce" or "Default Divorce" the property is divided so that both parties agree to the division. The main concern here is to agree to the property division so that it doesn’t create a fight that one party will want to go to a Michigan divorce lawyer or divorce attorney to make the case into a Contested Divorce. Then you will have to incur the fees of a lawyer too.

  • Debts Most divorcing spouses set out who will pay what debts as part of their marital settlement agreement during the divorce process, and close all of their joint accounts.
  • Michigan Alimony Laws (Michigan Spousal Support Laws) In an Uncontested Divorce, Alimony may be awarded to either spouse for their support and maintenance after the divorce. Both parties must agree to it. Since most spouses are working, alimony (if awarded at all), is usually for a shorter period of time, and smaller amount than in the past. In the Michigan divorce laws for alimony, it is possible for alimony to be paid in a lump sum payment of money or a payment plan. Alimony is not required for a person to get divorced in Michigan.

Local Court Filing Fees
Your Local Court filing fees are not included in the price of our service. To file your divorce in Michigan, the court fees must usually be paid when you file the divorce papers at your local county courthouse. It is better to call your local county court then ask what the fees are in your County to file for divorce. Regardless of whether you are going through a divorce service, using a Michigan divorce kit, using a divorce attorney (or divorce lawyer), or doing a nearly free divorce in Michigan, you will always be paying the local court fees the usual way.
