Michigan, like most states today, is a no-fault divorce state

This means that neither party has to provide evidence of grounds for divorce. Instead, they must simply state that the marriage has broken down. However, it is important to note that “fault grounds” can play a role in court decisions on issues such as child custody, property rights, and alimony (spousal support). 

We hope that you have found the preceding information useful for considering what kind of divorce is best for you and your partner.
