You are doing the right thing by filing the motion. Perhaps there is something negative going on that your daughter is afraid of disclosing. Still, your duty is to comply with the parenting time order and continue facilitating her relationship with her father. Typically in these situations with a...Read more »
No. Miranda Rights apply when 1) you are in custody, and 2) being interrogated. The rights protect you from involuntary self-incrimination, and when violated, can lead to suppression of any statements or evidence gained.
Only because of TV and movies do we believe the police need to...Read more »
There is nothing wrong with it. A police report is not evidence; it is simply a summation of information police received. If the complaintant said that, it's proper for the police to report it. A trial will determine whether that statement is relevant and admissible.
Hello. I am 19 and my fiance is 21, and we're dealing with an issue. My mother and father are posting about me being missing and my fiance being a human trafficker when it's 100% false. My fiance is visually impaired and walks with a walker, and makes motivational content. My mother... Read more »
Not much you can do. For one thing, if the slander is directed toward your fiance, then only he has standing to do anything about it; you can't do it for him. And it's questionable whether what your mother is saying is libel or slander. There is very much a difference between an opinion...Read more »
I am in Michigan and was convicted of a felony in 1998. Great bodily harm less than murder. I know that it is up to the individual companies, but wondering if there is any law, state or federal , that would prevent me from working there.
Another violation and give him more time is this legal? And how can we fight this? He was sentenced 09/09/22 and he's had 3 more court dates that they keep pushing back now it's 10/06/22. They also give no paperwork to his attorney before court but want them to take the sentence and told... Read more »

Not going to be thrown out just yet, perhaps. When you turn yourself in, a bond will be set; be prepared to post or have someone ready to post on your behalf. It would be wise for you to retain an attorney immediately to help you through this process.
Long story short my exhusband lived with his parents so they helped raised my 2 boys for the last 10yrs of their life They decided to withhold this info from me because they did not want my boys to come to my house permanently since their father is not alive Another family member thought it was not...

The police are right: this is a family court matter that needs to be addressed there. If you do not have legal custody of the children, it's possible that with the father dead, the grandparents would become guardians. And even if you have shared legal custody, the best interest of the child...Read more »
Unsure what to do father passed away. The family is now withholding my children from me even though it’s my weekend to pick up. I called the local authorities and they stated that the family members can still withhold my children from me even if father is dead and that is a family matter and I... Read more »
My husband and I declared ourselves married while living in Colorado back in 2016. We have since moved to Michigan and have decided to finally get around to having a ceremony. This will be more a renewal of vows but someone brought up signing a marriage license, since we don't have one. Is... Read more »
Interesting question! Have you been filing taxes jointly? As you probably already know, but for others' benefit who may come upon this question, common law marriage is a legal form of marriage in some states. Michigan does not allow for common law marriage, but does recognize marriages legally...Read more »
For the 4 years I have worked at Menards Inc. I have not had any performance or attendance issues.

Generally, absent a contract or a union agreement, employment in Michigan is "at will". There is limited protection against firing, but retaliation may be a legitimate issue to address. Your problem, though, may be that by your account,...Read more »
Depends on the facts of the case and how much investigation is required. There is no timeline. I've seen cases sent to the prosecutor a day after a report is made; I've also seen cases that take years.
The death was deemed a suicide, in 2007. I have the CSI officer's name. My mother did not have any other children, however, my dad, her husband before she died is still alive and I live with him. The case is closed.
After Proof of Service for Informal probate and appointment of PR, notice intent request informal appt PR were mailed out. 14 days is not here yet, nothing filed yet. Can you hire a different attorney instead? If so, does another notice need to be filed again, waiting another 14 days? No... Read more »
If the reason to look for a different attorney is dissatisfaction with the timeline so far, I think your concern may be a bit unfounded at this point. It is not unusual for notices to go out, and then proof of service of those notices to be sent to the court later. 14 days is 14 days, but you also...Read more »
Avoid incarceration? Unlikely. The biggest risk factors are his loose ties to the community and his history of failure to appears. I know people change, but judges see that and think "this guy can't be trusted to be out in the community to do the right thing if he can't even show up to court".
