What can i do to stop my ex wife from leaving michigan with my children we were divorced in oakland county and everything goes out of the family court there im a big part of my childrens lives.
Your former wife is not entitled to change the domicile or residence of the children more than 100 miles from their residence at the time of filing the complaint. There is also a prohibition from removing them from the State of Michigan without the approval of the Court (which should be in the form of a court order). If your Judgment grants permission for her to remove the children from the State of Michigan, then she can do so without approval of the court. You should engage the services of an experienced and knowledgeable family law attorney to oppose such a move, although permitting the relocation is within the Court's discretion. However, just because one parent requests relief of this nature does not mean it is automatically granted.See question
I have recently been ordered to pay child support for a child who lives out of state. However, this is the third year that I have not been able to see this child. In addition, the mother has blocked the child's phone so that my wife nor I can c...
I suggest you hire an experienced family law attorney in the state/county where the custody/support order was issued to file a motion to get you parenting time. How long has the child lived out of state? It's possible that you may have to file documents in the state/county where the child resides, especially if the custody/support order was entered in the state where the child now resides. The fact that you have not seen the child or are able to make contact with the child is not a basis for child support reduction.See question
My kids father and I are splitting up we want to have joint custody of the kids but don't really want to involve courts so we if sign a paper and get it notarized if he breaks the agreement will it hold up in court
Absolutely not. The only thing that holds up in court, when it comes to this issue, is a court order.See question
I've been reading a lot of blogs and legal sites and I know each case is different and each state is different. I just want to know a couple things: 1. if my child's biological father has been absent all 13 years of their life and only paid child...
In order for your husband to adopt your daughter, the biological father would have to consent to an adoption and have his parental rights terminated. A selling point to get his consent is to tell him he would then be relieved of all further child support once the adoption is completed. There is also a statute that provides for the termination of parental rights if a parent fails to maintain sufficient contact AND has not paid child support for a period of 2 years. His absence, in and of itself, will not be decisive or relevant to the adoption, unless termination is sought for the reasons stated in the statute. Keep in mind that the adoption and request to relocate cannot be filed in the divorce court. Adoption petition must be filed in the Probate Court and the relocation request would be handled by the court which established parenting time and child support orders.
The biological parent's absence for all 13 years will be taken into consideration (and more likely than not be very important) when requesting relocation.See question
Im not making as much as i was making and was wondering if its cheaper to get medical insurance for 2 kids through my job or get medical assistance from the state
If you applied for state assisted medical insurance (MIChild) you would have to meet the criteria for such assistance. There are financial guidelines. Contact the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).See question
My child just turned 18 and is still attending high school, so the child support from the non-custodial parent is in effect until graduation at 19. Due to driving distances, in the past, the court had ordered shared transportation for parenting ti...
No. Once your son turned 18 years of age he is an adult, regardless of the fact he is still in high school. The court maintains jurisdiction merely with regard to support.See question
A friend of mine found out that there husbands divorce was not final until a month after they got married. She wants to make sure that her marriage is still valid in the State of Michigan.
It would not be a valid marriage....See question

I feel like this is a form of harassment . He made a false CPS report on me . Then after the CPS report , which the case is still open , he was asking me to not take this to court or he will either commit suicide or sign off his rights on them . A...
More than likely...nothing. He has a right to see the children, so he can take them anytime he exercises parenting time. So the threat is not really a threat. There is not a basis to warrant entry of a PPO.See question

I am sorry to hear about this dangerous environment in which you and your child are living. If you come from a good and wealthy family, I'd speak with family and have them send you funds to retain an experienced and knowledgeable family law attorney. You must get yourself and your child away from him, especially with his parents coming to stay with you next month. If he strikes you or the child, or should he kick you, or throw your daughter on the couch you can leave the house and then call the police, explaining that you left the house because of the abuse you've experienced. If he's committing domestic violence and you can show the police any marks or bruises, he will more likely than not be arrested and ordered to have no contact with you. Things can only get worse once his parents arrive, as they will side with their son as I've witnessed so often. Protect yourself and your daughter.See question
