Clients call the office and ask about being legal separated. In Michigan, you do not have to be legally separated before you are divorced. Married people can live separately with out a court order or court involvement. The benefit of this status is that the court will not be involved in your life. The downside of not having a court order or court involvement is that there is no rules regulating who is doing what. For example who has parenting time, who is paying support, who is paying what bills, who is living at the house, who is paying insurance, etc...

Typically when you file for divorce, a temporary order is put in place to regulate the parties relationship before the divorce is finalized. This order can be put in place right after the divorce complaint is filed. A temporary order can be in place up to a year. This temporary order will state who is living in the house, who is driving what car, who is paying support, spousal support, custody, parenting time, etc... It will regulate the relationship until the divorce is final or until the parties reconcile and dismiss the divorce. It is typically a good idea to have a temporary order entered even if you do not plan on finalizing the divorce. A temporary order creates stability in the situation and often times eliminates fear. Parties can go to counseling and work on their relationship during the temporary order time period.
