My husband has been dealing with threats & harassment from his exes family for several years. His ex abandoned her kids with us, but her mother continued to harass us- 7 false dcf/cps reports, even kidnapped the children for 48 hours last summer. When his ex was finally forced to pay child support, her mother filed a police report in michigan claiming he molested his neice July of 2014 to October 2015, in Michigan. However, he's lived here in Florida with me since September of 2013. Plz note that the same allegations were investigated & found false summer of 2013 by CPS in Michigan, after his ex mother in law tried to kick him out. His ex & her mother denied back then that he would ever do that & blamed the CPS call on the neices estranged mother.
Without investigating any of this, with only the police report, Michigan has issued a warrant for my husband. He's been sitting in jail for 6 weeks here in Florida. He's refused to waive extradition, but has been pressured to sign a waiver several times. There has not been any proper extradition hearing. I know we need an attorney. But what can we do in the meantime to try to get the Michigan case/warrant dismissed or a bond at least.
This is to complex to assess on the web. I generally waive extradition and get the client here as quickly as possible to minimize jail. Sometimes we can get a bond in the detaining state to facilitate a voluntary appearance. The case itself sounds very defensible in Michigan, but the heavy lifting on the defense starts when we get him here. I hope this helps.
In answering this question, it is not intended that an attorney-client relationship is formed and the information is for general reference only. I am licensed in Michigan and Florida and offer no legal advice outside of those states.
You need to get an attorney in MI first, and do what the attorney says is best. It will require a lot of time, and the sooner the attorney in MI is hired, the sooner the case will be resolved and your husband exonerated for these malicious things that have been done.
