  • Is there any way to avoid paying debt owed for medical bills to a hospital. It has been sent to a debt-collector.

    I have terrible medical insurance with very high deductibles ($4,150). It was sent to a debt-collector . I set up a payment plan with them (I have the letter as proof). I made every payment on time. They sent a garnishment to the bank on my c...

    Robert’s Answer

    The first step is to contact an attorney and ask the attorney to look at the letter and to give you an opinion on the matter. The letter you referenced in your post may or may not give you rights depending on the content of the same. Your post did not indicate who wrote the letter.

    It is also important to know the source of the funds that were garnished. As an example Social Security proceeds, if kept in their own checking account, cannot be garnished.

    To advise you an attorney will require additional information.

    Due to the economic climate in Michigan and the number of inquiries I have a second web site, MichiganCollectionAttorney.com, which just went online to assist people handling their own lawsuits. We are helping creditors and debtors as well as those that have been sued by creditors.

  • How can I ensure 100% custody of my child?

    I am pregnant. The father and I broke up because he has trouble controlling himself. I told him we could not get back together and he became very angry. He is threatening to take my child from me, or at the very least "I'll spoil it into wanting t...

    Robert’s Answer

    Assuming you are not married under Michigan law the father of the child would have absolutely no custody rights. Placing his name on the birth certificate has no legal significance. There are only two ways the father of a child born out of wedlock can obtain custody and parenting time rights.

    The first way is if a paternity case is filed. Issues pertaining to custody and parenting time can be resolved in a paternity case. If an affidavit of parentage has been executed then a paternity lawsuit should not be filed because the issue of whether the father is the child’s parent has been resolved by the properly executed and filed affidavit of parentage.

    The second way is if both parents have executed an affidavit of parentage. Once the affidavit is properly executed by both parents and notarized the mother of the child will have custody. However, the father may file a child custody and parenting time action. If this is done the court will hear the case and make custody and parenting time decisions that will be binding on both parties.

    Interestingly, under Michigan law if the mother should marry another person before the child is born and the child is born while they are married the new spouse would have parental rights to the child (assuming the new spouse does not contest his or her status as the child’s parent) and the actual natural father of the child would have no rights to the child at all.

    Hello:

    Mr. Gursten has given you good advice. I would add that you do have one positive thing on your side that may help with collecting any judgment you receive. If you do obtain a judgment you may be able to have the license of anyone you obtain a judgment against suspended by the Secretary of State.

  • Can a motion to dismiss in lieu of answer be filed in Michigan?

    I was served a summons and complaint where I am being sued by a creditor for a unsecured credit card debt. Can a motion to dismiss in lieu of answer be filed in Michigan? I have been unemployed for a year. What recourses are available for me a...

    Robert’s Answer

    Hello:
    I am an attorney licensed to practice in Michigan.

    A Motion to Dismiss (referred to in the Michigan Court System as a motion for Summary Disposition) or a Motion for a More Definite Statement may be brought before an answer or responsive pleading is filed. If a timely answer or one of these motions is not filed within 21 days of service (unless service is done out of Michigan or by mail then it is 28 days) then a default may be entered.

    In Michigan if you file one of these motions a default cannot be taken until the motion is resolved and you fail to file a proper answer within the extended time period allowed for the filing of one. In fact in some instances an appeal can be taken to a higher court before an answer or responsive pleading has to be filed.

    If you have a strong defense the court can grant a Motion for Summary Disposition and dismiss the case entirely without needless delay. Grated this does not happen often but if the facts warrant said action it should be taken.

    You should consult with an attorney immediately.

    I have assisted many people in your situation. Many have not been able to afford to hire an attorney to go to court with them. In some cases our clients have had the cases dismissed based on arguments we helped them develop. It is not uncommon for us to prepare answers and motions and to assist with pre-trial orders and discovery.

    We offer a complimentary review of your lawsuit paperwork as well as a complimentary follow up phone conference. I have handled collection matters for Plaintiffs and Defendants for over 30 years in Michigan. I am licensed to practice in State and Federal Courts in Michigan.
    There are some strong arguments that can be raised in some credit card lawsuits. The facts of each case and the defenses available vary from case to case. It certainly makes sense to have an attorney review the same.

  • Charged with retail fraud

    i have been charged with retail fraud without arrest and no evidence recovery. what if im not on camera and it just an employee who seen the merchandise in my bag?

    Robert’s Answer

    Hello:

    The answer to your question is yes.

    Since this is your first offense there is a good possibility that if you retain an attorney you may be able to negotiate a first offender plea that would allow you to keep your clean record. In fact if such a plea is negotiated and the charge is eventually dismissed you may answer the question, in connection with an employment application, of whether you have been arrested or convicted of a crime or a misdemeanor as no under Michigan law.

    You have an excellent chance of preserving your record.

    If you would like more information I would suggest that we talk by phone. Please contact me for a complimentary phone conference at (248) 737-3730.

    You can contact me by phone or email. Please remember to provide a phone number if I am not available when you call or if you send a response by e-mail.

    If you provide your phone number I will be glad to call you.

  • Custody or Guardianship?

    I am not sure if I should try to get custody or guardianship of my 8 month old granddaughter. She and her mother (my daughter) have lived in my house since she was born. I recently found out that my daughter is abusing alcohol and putting my gran...

    Robert’s Answer

    Hello:

    I had a very similar case a few years back and I was successful in having the grandmother appointed as the child's guardian. Since the mother has abandoned the child with you your status should allow you to ask the court to be appointed guardian of the child. For all practical purposes you will have custody of the child if you are appointed the guardian and will be entitled to child support payments form both children.

    If the mother or the presently incarcerated father returns and takes the child back your status may be different and the relief you may obtain may also be different.

    Robert’s Answer

    Hello:

    You should consult with an attorney immediately. You may be able to contest this matter if the accounts and investments were placed in your sister's name for the convenience of your father and not because he wanted that sister to be awarded everything he placed in her name.

    I have handled many similar suits and I have been successful in them. I offer a complimentary phone conference if you would like to discuss this matter. I have over thirty years of litigation, trial and appellate experience.

    Hello:

    Under Michigan law an employer may not make deductions from your pay unless you have agreed to the same in advance. A complaint may be filed with the Michigan Department of Labor. However, this may alienate your employer.
