What do I need to start the divorce process in Michigan?
To start the divorce process in Michigan you will want to visit the county courthouse to get a divorce petition. You may be able to download this from the court's website. There will be a filing fee and a service processing fee to go along with the document.
Before filing, it is usually a good idea to discuss the matter with your spouse. When trust is broken or there is potential for violence, you should make sure you are safe before moving forward.
