These types of divorce cases are usually quicker to accomplish because both parties do not have to worry about paying child support and arguing about who has which overnights with the children. The main issues will be division of real property: home(s); Pensions/401K/IRA’s, etc. Also, we must not forget about debt, and who will be responsible for it.
Spousal Support or Alimony is another main issue. Factors for determining spousal support are the length of the marriage, the parties ages, education, current income and the ability to earn future income. Cases without children can be completed within 60 days from the date you file, whereas a divorce with children can take at least 6 months. There is no difference in the time of your case in any of the county courts in Michigan.
Having many issues solved before going in front of the courts is the best thing for everyone. Working together for a fair resolution that meets your desires is what has to occur.
Each county in Michigan has slightly different procedures for going through friend of the court.
