Does anyone know of ANY [Michigan] cases where the non-offending parent petitioned the court to terminate respondent parents rights, and succeeded in having them terminated (without the involvement of DHS/CPS, besides their & the APA's signing off on the petition w/o any direct involvement)?!?! Every caselaw I have found references "the department" [DHS] as petitioner, and is therefor useless in my case... Help me please!! We were never unwed & no custody or support order was ever filed, prior to my filing petition for termination, when child just turned 4 years old [he's now just a few months past 5]. Extreemly violent relationship, high lethality risks.. fled when child was 8 moths. Petition states multiple proveable statutorial grounds for term., DHS/CPS w\ere never involved however..?
