Jackman & Kasody PLLC

What about same-sex divorce is so complicated?

The U.S. Supreme Court repealed the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in 2015. Same-sex marriage finally became lawful in Michigan and every other state in the country once the justices entered their ruling. At least 491,000 same-sex couples have taken the plunge and gotten married since then. But, many of those marriages have also ended in divorce.

Does Michigan have a below-average divorce rate?

Divorce rates differ from one state to the next, which is why looking at the overall rate for the country can be a bit misleading. Do you really have the same divorce odds if you live in Michigan as someone who lives in Florida, California or New York? You know intuitively that you don't, and you may be wondering if the rate is below or above average.
