An uncontested divorce occurs when: (a) there are no disputes or disagreements between you and your spouse over any financial or divorce-related issues (i.e., child custody and support, division of marital property or spousal support); and (b) your spouse either agrees to the divorce or fails to to file a formal response with divorce court. More clear that all factors, i.e. marital home, assets, debts, custody, visitation, alimony, child support, even the family dog, have been amicably resolved between the Husband and Wife.
In an uncontested action, the spouses go separate ways without a trial and in some cases, without even appearing in court.
Contested divorce means you and your spouse could not agree on the terms of the divorce, or even whether there should be a divorce at all. Some examples of issues that must be resolved prior to the court granting a divorce in Michigan are child custody, child support, spousal maintenance, division of property and debts.
In contested divorces, a judge will have the final say in all terms of the divorce, and will decide:
Division of assets
For divorcing parties of significant means, the issue of property division can become very complex when high assets are involved. Assets need to be properly identified as marital or premarital property, accurately valued and negotiated as to ownership. We know what documents to ask for, including bank statements, deeds, declarations of net worth, corporate financial statements, tax returns and investment records. You should be able to go about your life and work with complete assurance that your legal affairs are being capably handled.
We help women before, during, and after divorce.
Our divorce and family law lawyers help you understand the legal aspects of divorce and help you and your kids transition into the new chapter of your life.
Michigan is a no-fault state
Michigan Divorce Requirements
In Michigan, the only reason needed to initiate divorce proceedings is an assertion that the marriage is irretrievably broken.
Michigan law does not require one spouse to blame other spouse to get a divorce.
Michigan law requires that the person filing the divorce must have been a state resident for at least 180 days immediately before filing. He or she must also have been a resident of the county in which the complaint is filed for at least ten days.

What Is A Contested Divorce?
If the other parent will not modify the parenting plan, you must get an order modifying the parenting plan from the court. Unless there is an immediate emergency (i.e., the child’s life or health is in immediate danger), the court will not modify the parenting plan without holding a hearing and allowing both parents to present their respective views. Even if a court does modify a parenting plan without a hearing because of an emergency, the court will need to hold a hearing shortly after modifying the plan to determine whether the plan should remain as modified or if it needs to be changed back.

Be realistic, but start identifying what is truly important. Figure out what you will need in terms of assets and support from the marriage settlement.

Understanding the Custody Framework
Michigan Family Laws distinguishes between sole physical and sole legal custody, and carves out visitation rights for the noncustodial parent. If awarded sole legal custody, one parent holds the exclusive responsibility for “decisions relating to the health, education, and welfare of a child.”
An annulment is a way of ending the marriage by determining that the marriage was not valid or legal to begin with. There are just a few grounds to have a marriage automatically annulled, or “void ab initio” meaning “to be treated as invalid from the outset”:
Marrying a relative (sibling, half-sibling, ancestor/descendant, aunt/nephew or uncle/niece)
Fraud in inducement
