Court records are open to the public. Moreover, Michigan has a specific court rule, MCR 8.119(I)(5), that forbids a court from sealing "a court order or opinion . . . ." From your description, I can only surmise that your "ex" pursued an appeal which resulted in an "unpublished" opinion. The term "unpublished" does not mean that the opinion cannot be viewed by the public. Instead, the term means that the opinion does not constitute binding precedent for subsequent appellate panels.
In short, the appeal and the opinion is "legal", but you may wish to consult with a lawyer for further guidance and clarification.See question
I plan to file a complaint for non payment of rent by way of an attorney, I have already sent a non payment of rent notice to the tenant. Would it be valid in court for me to have sent this notice myself - being that the lease is in a LLC or in th...
Without looking into the matter further, an LLC can issue the non-payment of rent notices on its own behalf. However, the rules change with respect to court proceedings. An LLC cannot represent itself in court in a summary proceedings action for an eviction order. The law treats an LLC as a separate legal "person." As such, if an LLC files an action in court, it requires a lawyer for representation to avoid the unauthorized practice of law.
Your attorney should be able to provide you with further guidance on this issue.See question
Hello, I was reading an online article named "All You Need To Know About Termination Of Parental Rights In Michigan" and I have some questions regarding my situation. I live in Mi. I just received a letter from County Friend of the Court perta...
You should consult with an experienced family law attorney, presumably one who regularly practices in Livingston County. Indeed, you and your son would be best served by consulting with an attorney if you are served with a motion or FOC request. Most family law practitioners will provide you with a free initial consultation. These matters are very fact specific and all of the facts and circumstances unique to your situation should be addressed with an experienced family law attorney.
With that said, the issues concerning child support as opposed to visitation are separate matters. In other words, and generally speaking, unpaid back child support is not a legal impediment to parenting time. It may be relevant, however, in terms of evaluating the best interest factors. For example, if the father chose deliberately not to see his child to avoid paying child support, a judge might consider that circumstance in the overall analysis. A court would certainly consider the father's history, his current living circumstances, and what, if any, plans he has contemplated to somehow reunite with his child after all of these years.
But again, an experienced family law attorney would provide you with better guidance. If the father is an unfit parent, and if you have sufficient grounds, a good lawyer could also advise as to whether a termination of parental rights petition is warranted.
I wish you the best of luck.

I agree with my colleague. You should consult with an experienced employment litigation attorney immediately. Very often, plaintiff's employment attorneys will provide you with a free initial consultation. And if you can gather sufficient evidence for a claim, most plaintiff's attorneys would be willing to take on the matter on a contingency fee basis.
Based on your description, you may have direct evidence of pregnancy discrimination. If this is the case, the legal elements for pursuing a claim will be easier for you to establish. But again, employment matters are very fact specific. I wish you the best of luck.See question

You should probably keep a calendar/journal to document your conversations with your ex-boyfriend. Generally speaking, if you get sued, your ex would presumably try and establish that you both had a contractual agreement to compensate him for his materials if and when you broke up.
Bear in mind, however, that you may have several defenses. Depending on what he alleges in his complaint, you may have a statute of limitations defense, statute of frauds, and you also may have a defense based on the lack of consideration. In Michigan, services rendered in a meretricious relationship (in other words, a relationship based on love and affection), are presumed to be gratuitous. Your ex would have to establish by clear and convincing evidence that he expected monetary payment at the time he provided carpet and paint for the house. If he fails to establish that, the court would presume that he provided such services based simply on his love and affection for you, and not because he expected repayment.
As you can see, the law can be somewhat complicated and if you are sued, you probably should hire an attorney to represent you. And given that the two of you are still living together, it might be worth your while to consult with an attorney immediately for further protection and guidance. Depending on your situation, your attorney may help you reach an agreement with your ex to prevent any lawsuit from being filed.See question
I'm no longer with the guy because I recently found out he has Numerous woman. We got into a agreement about it, and he's threatening to release a sex tape of us he made with me knowing! I respect myself,and need help on what to do??
Without knowing all of your facts, you should probably send him a letter demanding the return of the tape and at the very least, letting him know that he has absolutely no permission whatsoever to share the tape. In the letter, you should state unequivocally that you never consented to such recording.
You could file a police report, but without actual evidence of the tape, you may or may not get push-back.
It may be worth your while to consult with a lawyer to take immediate action.See question

You have the freedom to ask for a higher amount, but the company likewise has the freedom to reject it. Michigan does not recognize punitive damage awards, unless specifically stated in a statute. You might be better served by asking another competent roofer to inspect your roof and provide an estimate of the costs to remedy/repair. You can then use that estimate as a basis to request a partial refund.See question
A 16 year old girl i know sent nude photos to a 19 year old boy, and after breaking up with him he posted these pictures on facebook and has been harassing her for about a week. If she took legal action against him for sharing child pornography, w...
The 19 year-old is considered an adult; he could be possibly charged criminally as well as face civil liability as well. Most recently, there was a reported case out of Macomb County where a plaintiff was awarded with a $600,000.00 judgment against a defendant for "revenge porn." The defendant apparently secretly recorded private activity and posted it on his Facebook page.
The girl's parents should file a police complaint and seek the advice of a trial lawyer for further guidance and advice.See question
I recently found out that my wife is having an affair. In doing research I found the adultery statute is in the books still (mcl. 750.30). It basically says the woman cant be prosecuted but the other man can. I have never heard of anyone being pro...
Michigan has not seen a prosecution for adultery in over 100 years. And sometime in the 1950s, Michigan also repealed the alienation of affection statute as well.
With respect to divorce, Michigan is a no-fault state, but the Court can take fault into consideration when factoring an equitable property division.
If your wife refuses to terminate the affair and marriage counseling is out of the question, you should probably consult with a family law attorney right away to protect all of your rights. Most divorce lawyers will provide you with a free initial consultation and will advise you to prepare a for a divorce filing.

Generally speaking, Michigan does not criminalize non-payment of a loan debt. There are exceptions, such as knowingly passing a bad check, not paying child support, etc. You could possibly be sued, but the lawsuit would probably be governed by the terms of the loan agreement that you presumably signed.
But even if the payday lenders sue and obtain a judgment, your disability payments may not be subject to garnishment. You may wish to speak to a lawyer in your area for further guidance and advice. A short one-hour consultation may be well worth your while.See question
