Did You Know?
How Do I?
More than 40% of all granted Michigan divorces are uncontested divorces.Divorces are generally referred to as contested or uncontested. An uncontested divorce is when the divorcing couple has reached an agreement on all issues. These issues include the division of property and liabilities; whether or not maintenance (alimony) will be paid, and if so how much and for how long. If there are minor or dependent children, then the parties have also agreed on a time sharing plan and child support. In a contested divorce, the couple is not in agreement on at least one of these issues, and is asking the court to decide the disputed issues for them.
By law only an attorney can provide you with l egal guidance and advice.Any person who is NOT an attorney licensed to practice law in Michigan is considered to be a nonlawyer. If a nonlawyer helps you fill out divorce forms, that person must give you a copy of a Disclosure from Nonlawyer, Michigan Family Law Rules of Procedure Form 12.900(a), before he or she helps you. A nonlawyer helping you fill out divorce forms also must put his or her name, address, and telephone number on the bottom of the last page of every form he or she helps you complete.
The amount of child support to be paid must be within 5% of the child support guidelines.Child support is based on the number of children and the combined income of the parents, and it is divided between the parents in direct proportion to their income or earning capacity. If you or the other parent request that the court award an amount that is different than the guideline amount, you must complete a Motion to Deviate from Child Support Guidelines, Michigan Supreme Court Approved Family Law Form 12.943.
Both the husband and wife must each file a financial affidavit in order to divorce.Each party must file a Family Law Financial Affidavit, Michigan Family Law Rules of Procedure Form 12.902(b) or (c). Failure to make this required disclosure within the time required by the Michigan Family Law Rules of Procedure may cause the court to dismiss your divorce case.
