An interesting article about divorce in Michigan says that there is a new experimental process happening in the state. The state is allowing certain couples to be able to file for divorce without an attorney! The Michigan Supreme Court has given permission to two counties for a three-year test of lawyer-free divorces, but not everyone will qualify. In order to qualify they must have a low-income, no real property, no pensions or retirement plans, and no reports of domestic violence or abuse. The couples are able to meet with the judge for 3 sessions to determine their custody arrangements. It is hoped that these lawyer-free divorces will help to ease the court docket and make divorce more accessible to those who can’t afford an attorney in the state.
