    Peter’s Answer

    To get an annulment, you need to prove one of the following circumstances surrounding your marriage: Bigamy (if your spouse was already married when you married), Consanguinity (incest), Impotence (if it was concealed to you that your spouse cannot have children), Lack of capacity (if you could not understand that you were getting married due to your mental state) Under age of majority (if the marriage is between a person under the age of 18) , or Fraud (A misrepresentation or concealment of a fact essential to a marriage such as drug addition, mental disease, and religious beliefs). You should speak to an experienced matrimonial attorney to determine whether or not your case falls into one of those categories.

    Peter’s Answer

    The hearing for the Final Restraining Order is a trial where you will present your evidence, witnesses and testify. Your testimony will be subject to cross-examination by your Husband or his attorney. Your Husband will also have the opportunity to testify and present his own witnesses. You should consider hiring an attorney for this hearing.

    As far as custody and support, if you are granted a Final Restraining Order, the judge has the authority make a temporary custody/visitation schedule as well as provide you with temporary support. However, the key word is temporary - everything is subject to modification. Assuming you move forward with a divorce, that is how this issues will be handled on a more permanent basis. I suggest that you contact an attorney to discuss your options for divorce.

  • Location of parenting time

    In the parenting agreement (which was drafted by attorneys), location of parenting time was described as "FATHER's place of residence" or "MOTHER's place of residence". The mother lives in a condo complex - so plenty of places to stroll the child...

    Peter’s Answer

    Unless the agreement or an order specifically states that your parenting time must take place inside your residence or that you cannot take the child outside, her request sounds very unreasonable.

    Peter’s Answer

    Appendix IX-B states that you must use your gross income when determining child support. It goes on to define gross income and the definition includes "gains derived from dealings in property." If you have sporadic income, you can average your last 36 months.

  • My uncle bought a house in 2010 for $295,000 under my name. Now is at $310,000. He's behind on mortgage by $5,000. Price went up

    My uncle bought a house in 2010 for $295,000 under my name. Now is at $310,000. He's behind on mortgage by $5,000. Why does the house cost more than when he first bought it?

    Peter’s Answer

    Real estate does not automatically increase in value. The property value can change with the market itself as well as the condition of the property. If the market in that area has gone down, it is likely the home value decreased as well. If the condition of the property has deteriorated over time, the value will likely decrease as well.

    If he is behind on he mortgage, sometimes there are late fees, penalties and additional interest that would be owed on top of the original payment he is behind on.

    Peter’s Answer

    As previously stated, you need to respond within 15 days of the hearing date. You will need to provide proof of your income. You should also provide proof as to how much it costs to cover your child on your health insurance so you get a credit on the child support. If you want custody or visitation, you should cross-move for that.

    Peter’s Answer

    If you are asking for the right of first refusal, the custody agreement and prior motion and orders would have to be reviewed for someone to give you the best advice. Your case seems highly fact sensitive, especially since you said the judge has already ruled against you.

    Peter’s Answer

    You should file an application seeking visitation in Michigan. The court will determine whether, in the best interest of your daughter, this visitation is appropriate. Given your offender status, you should definitely consult with an attorney before you file the motion.
