Michigan Residency Requirements
At least one spouse must have lived in Michigan for at least 180 days before the divorce is filed.
Grounds For Divorce
Michigan is a no-fault divorce state.
In a Michigan no-fault divorce the spouses agree that there has been a "breakdown of the marriage relationship" and there remains no reasonable likelihood that the marriage can be preserved.
