The Definition of a “No Fault” Divorce in Michigan

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

When a couple decides to go their separate ways, they must always file a complaint for divorce. In the most basic terms, this filing alleges that there has been a breakdown of the marriage and that there is no reasonable likelihood that the relationship can be preserved.

So where does the “no fault” divorce come into play? By law, Michigan is a “no fault” divorce state, which essentially means that neither party is legally at fault regarding the dissolution of the marriage. While that sounds simple enough, the matter can get a little complicated. Jacob Femminineo explains in detail in this video that fault can indeed matter. If there is a definitive cause for the breakdown of the marriage, such as addiction or infidelity, fault certainly comes into play.

Watch this video to find out how the fault of one party can affect the divorce settlement, particularly the division of assets.
