You can sue your husband for divorce, and generally not his mistress.
As for where to file, I suggest your seek counsel. It is not as simple as you are envisioning.
To the PROSPECTIVE client, please call another attorney for your choice with more detaiils and an appointment. My PRELIMINARY answer to your question(s) is for general purposes and based upon what little information you have conveyed. It is based on such limited information that the general answer should never be relied as a reason for your action or inaction. My response does NOT establish an attorney-client relationship and such may only be established by mutual agreement, and the signing of a written retainer agreement, which will generally require payment for our services, as this is what we do for a living and, just like you, we must get paid for our work.. .
Hi. The actual filing for divorce in Detroit is done at the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center which is at the foot of Woodward and Jefferson in downtown Detroit. I urge you to talk to an attorney to find out exactly what your legal rights are before filing. You also cannot sue your husband's mistress. Your remedy is to sue your husband for divorce. Goopd luck to you.
After nearly three decades of marriage, you should be consulting with an experienced family law attorney. There are very likely a lot of complex issues that must be properly dealt with. It would be foolish for you to think about filing for divorce without proper legal representation.
In Detroit, divorces are filed at the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center. But, if you don't even know where to file, I wonder why you expect to know HOW to file, much less how to get everything you are entitled to receive in a divorce settlement. In a long-term marriage, you have many rights to be protected. I encourage you to consult with a local family attorney to ensure your rights are understood and fully protected.
