While much is made about divorce, it is not necessarily the decision everyone wishes to make. If you wish to separate from your spouse or otherwise end your marital relationship, know that in Michigan, you have two alternatives to divorce. You may decide on seeking separate maintenance. Alternatively, you and your spouse could seek an annulment of your marriage, meaning that a court would rule that a marriage never took place.
Our Michigan domestic relations attorneys are very knowledgeable in these particular areas. Over the years, our Family Law Division has handled a number of cases concerning the legal issues arising out of annulments and seeking separate maintenance, as well as other divorce alternatives.
