A motion would not be the proper vehicle. The victim needs to contact the prosecutor's office, or if it has one, specifically the victim / witness coordinator. Some judges will want the victim to state it on the record, and usually during a plea or sentencing. But keep in mind that the judge...Read more »
If he is a witness or victim, then yes, he must testify. Be aware that if any information surfaces that you as the parent are discouraging or otherwise hindering him from testifying, you could be charged with witness tampering, and you could find yourself subject to a CPS investigation.
No. A minor guardianship suspends parental rights. If there is one legal parent without concerns that would arise to threatening his or her parental rights, then the court cannot make a finding of need for a guardianship. If there is one legal parent, and that person agrees to have a grandparent be...Read more »
What information are you seeking? If the phone is in his name, then he has access to his records. Instead of involving the phone company, why does he not just download them and give them to you, or give you online access to those records?
If he is unwilling to cooperate, then you should...Read more »
Have either of you filed a divorce? The home would be subject to division as part of the marital estate, but you'll have a tough hill to climb in getting the court to order him out since he's been there for all this time alone.

I didn't qualify So I was going to go home get some over the phone. As i was trying to leave out of a one way exit this young lady pulls... Read more »
I agree with the advice given by the other attorneys. I would further add that you are unlikely to receive assistance from the police in this matter; they will likely tell you it's a civil matter, and you'll need to go to court to address it. And that's exactly where you should go:...Read more »
Assuming you mean joint legal custody, then yes, you would need the father's consent to any major education changes. Have you discussed this with him? If not, and if in fact you are charged with truancy, you run the risk of being on the wrong end of a custody change.
I broke up with my girlfriend. I wanted the bed that I let her daughter borrow back. She responded in text “have a lawyer draw up papers that you will never talk to my family and that if you do you have to pay me $10,000. Then you can have it back”. This seems illegal to me but I cant seem to... Read more »
Judges make decisions based on the best interest of the child; there is no "normal" parenting time schedule because every situation is different. That said, the intent is to create an equitable (not necessarily equal) parenting time arrangement. And with young children, the thought is...Read more »

Highly unlikely. If anything, a period of time for your son to get to know this man may take place. That could be in the form of video conferencing. Then, depending on how that goes, the father may be afforded some parenting time to take place here in Michigan.
Is it legal for my estranged husband to take a vehicle that is from a buy here pay here lot registration and payments / contract is solely in my name leanholder did not even know the vehicle was in a differnt state did not authorize the transport of vehicle
Is this a riddle? The son is almost assuredly not the biological son of the father-in-law. Otherwise, the father-in-law impregnated someone at the age of 8. The son could be an older woman's son, and that woman married a 19 year old, making him the father-in-law. That scenario would be legal.
I'm not sure what you would gain from it economically. Generally, one party's liability ends upon another party's criminal action. If there is video footage of this, I'm unsure what other security measures Goodwill could be expected to take. Further, stores are usually not...Read more »
am listed as living daughter. Everything going through probate. Told me there is Exempt Property Allowance that I would be entitled in Michigan half of $15,000. He doesn’t think I am entitled because my “father” never had a relationship with me. He also says that if I take this money I will... Read more »
it was denied on 08/20/2015. is that to long ago to appeal their decision and get the compensation i paid extra for out of my paycheck? it was an 80,000 policy and i received none. my bac was only a little above the legal limit. and the way they took it was sketchy and contradicts themselves.
You should talk with an insurance attorney, but I suspect 1) it is too late to now appeal that decision, and 2) even if you did appeal, I would imagine the policy allows them to decline coverage when they can point to a criminal act like this as the cause.
