“Michigan may be a no-fault divorce state, but that doesn’t mean marital rights don’t need to be protected.”
Michigan has a “no fault” divorce statute that only requires one party to state the marriage relationship has deteriorated to the point that it cannot be preserved and a divorce is the only reasonable outcome. This statute has many benefits in that it potentially provides a quick and simple dissolution of the marriage. It also eliminates the blame and harsh accusations that might otherwise be necessary. However, the statute does not mean that the reasons for the breakdown of the marriage or the behavior of one or both spouses will not be considered in matters of asset division or spousal support. However desirous of an amicable settlement the divorcing parties may be, each deserves to protect his or her rights.
