Where to file a Michigan divorce? – The Jurisdictional and Residency Requirements of a Divorce

Where can you file a Michigan divorce?

I was recently approached by the editors of the Michigan Family Law Journal to write a monthly column on Michigan Divorce and Family Law.  The Michigan Family Law Journal is a publication of the State Bar of Michigan Family Law Section and serves as “Family Law Council’s forum to share ideas; review, evaluate, and testify regarding new legislation; and summarize and analyze case law and trends that affect our Section.  .  .  Our readers receive advance notice of the most current pertinent legal developments which may impact our practice. We learn from The Best to be The Best.”

My most recent contribution to the Family Law Journal is provided below.  While the intended audience is lawyers and Judges, I am including the article for our readers as well.

This article addresses the issue of jurisdiction and residency requirements of a divorce.  Simply put, where can you file a Michigan divorce?  Like many legal questions, the answer is not always simple.  However in most cases, you file a Michigan divorce in the county you have resided in for at least 10 days.  In order to file a Michigan divorce, you must also reside in the State of Michigan for at least six months prior to filing.
