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 »

Michigan does not allow for common law marriage, but does recognize marriages legally...Read more »

You should immediately and privately consult with a lawyer in Utah to inquire about the state’s requirements to file for divorce. Many states have a waiting period for new residents before someone can file for divorce. Also, if your spouse has no connection to Utah, then an Utah court would not...Read more »
My daughter's father and I lost custody in 2019. (It's a long story) We fought to get her back for 2 yrs. And then had to give my aunt guardianship so they wouldn't take our rights. She had cancer so she had to go thru chemo and radiation and a few months later, they told her she was... Read more »
It's an uphill battle, but it can be done where the guardianship is terminated. Were your rights terminated - either voluntary or involuntary after a trial? That will determine whether it's a matter of terminating the guardianship or you becoming guardian of your own child.
I called police to see if I can report the other two. Got the run around in Jackson county. I finally was told I could report her father biting her. She scratched him protecting herself and he put charges on the child although her injuries were more severe. He made things up to have her go to... Read more »
I bought my home from my grandmas estate. My aunt was executor of the estate. Part of the deal when buying the house was that uncle would help me install new siding. Since the moment I paid them they have 100% ignored me. I have the siding, but now need to pay someone to install it
My parents are real estate agents and used spokieo to do background check on my fiance with our knowledge or consent.

I'm unsure what your question is. It sounds like you entered a guilty plea. Typically, agreements made in failure to pay cases depend on how much of the arrearage is paid before sentencing. What matters now is not so much what you've done since 2013, or even what you've worked out...Read more »
