You mean that you have a separation agreement and have been living separate and apart for 25 years, correct?  Michigam does not recognize a legal separation. It should not be difficult at all to have an attorney prepare an uncontested divorce citing no fault grounds.  This is assuming your husband will execute the necessary documents to facilitate same. Good luck.
