LARA Services for Veterans' Spouses

Per MCL 333.16181 and MCL 339.213, spouses of active military men and women stationed in Michigan are eligible to obtain a temporary six-month health or occupational license or registration. The spouses must show proof they hold an out-of-state license or registration that is valid and in good standing, that he or she is married to a member of the armed forces and that his or her spouse was assigned to a duty station in Michigan under his or her spouse’s official active duty military orders. The temporary license may be renewed for one additional 6-month term, if the board determines that the temporary licensee continues to meet the requirements.
