Can I use and possession award include an order to pay expenses?

Michigan is a no fault state; meaning that, if you ask the County for divorce, you will have that request granted. You do not have to allege that your spouse has done anything wrong. You must however, allege that there has been a breakdown in the marriage.

NOTICE: None of these questions and answers constitute legal advice. To obtain legal advice, consult with an attorney. This is especially important in divorce and family law matters, in which outcomes are often peculiar to the particular facts and circumstances of the case.
