The Basics You NEED TO KNOW About Divorce

2218303-xxlarge.jpg
To obtain a divorce in Michigan, one of the parties must have been a resident of the state for at least 180 days and of the county in which he or she files for divorce for at least 10 days prior to filing the complaint for divorce. These residency requirements are jurisdictional, meaning neither party can waive them (say, for example, if you only resided in county A for 9 days but nonetheless wanted a divorce in county A).

CAN GUYS GET ALIMONY?

18233.jpgTalking to a guy about asking for alimony from his wife is one of the toughest parts of my, and I dare say all family attorneys', job. Tough not because the concept is difficult to explain, but tough because most guys just refuse to do it. Isn't that a woman's thing, after all? In theory, no. In practice, sometimes it is. But should that stop you from making sure you get your fair share?
