If you are married with no children, the soonest you can get divorced is 60 days after the filing of your complaint for divorce. If you have children under the age of 18 the waiting period is 6 months after the filing of your complaint for divorce except that the Court may waive upon motion by a party that the 6- month waiting period will cause an unusual hardship showing. MCL 552.9f. The hardship factors vary and not all Judges grant the waiver of the 6-month waiting period. An experienced attorney will know once a Judge is assigned whether you will qualify for a waiver of the six months or they can find out by inquiry. It is important to note that some Judges require the filing of a formal motion while others will accept an oral request on the final court date.
