Filing for Divorce in Michigan
Entry of the Judgment of Divorce

Once the Judgment of Divorce is entered, it is final as to the property distribution and financial issues, unless it is appealed for grounds such as fraud, mutual mistake, a procedural error or an error made by the Court.  After a Judgment of Divorce is entered, child support, parenting time and custody remain modifiable, and can be revisited by the court if there is a sufficient change in circumstance or proper purpose.  If spousal support is ordered, and it is modifiable, it may also be revisited where there is a change in circumstances.  A Judge cannot order non-modifiable spousal support, but the parties can agree to it being non-modifiable. There are a variety of reasons why non-modifiability, may be preferable.  See the discussion on Spousal Support.
