Can one spouse be awarded the exclusive right to temporary use and possession of property?

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.

Question: Can one spouse be awarded the exclusive right to
temporary use and possession of property?

Answer: A spouse with custody of a minor child of the parties can be
awarded use and possession of a family home, car, furniture,
furnishings and home appliances. In making an award, the court
considers the best interests of the child, the interests of each party
in continued use of the property as a dwelling place or to provide
income, and the hardship, if any, on the party whose interest would
be infringed.
