Doubtful. It sounds like at this point you are sending her money out of the goodness of your heart and not pursuant to any order - in other words, the money you gave could be considered a gift. The law presumes that each party performs due diligence, and it doesn't sound like you took any...Read more »

My ex falsely accused me of DV the night I escaped. I kept silent and plead guilty because he continued threatening me and because the only witness that could verify was my daughter.

My fiancé and I will be getting married 7/23/2022. The plan is for him to adopt him. I want to change my minor Childs last name to my fiance's prior to the wedding. Can I do this in Michigan? My son's biological father agrees to the name change and I have sole custody.
I live in the state of Michigan and my sister is 21 and is known for having some mental illness with ADHD and depression, refuses treatment. She rarely has a job and when she does, doesn’t always go in and ends up being fired. She has a 5 year old daughter (birthday Jan 2nd) and she isn’t... Read more »
There is a big difference between being an abusive or neglectful parent and being what some might consider a "bad" parent. With what you're saying, it's hard to say whether any abuse or neglect is going on. People have children and some even excel as parents with mental illness,...Read more »
Depends on if you are looking for a current or old case. If a current case, contact the court where you believe the case is pending and ask them for details. If an old case, you may want to visit your local library or look into free case search systems on the internet.
Assuming the child is considered in your judgment of divorce, movement of the child is subject to the court's jurisdiction. Generally, neither parent may move a child more than 100 miles or across state lines without the court's permission.
I had voluntarily signed my rights off of my 4 children back in March 2021 after fighting with DHS for 2 years. I'm now pregnant, due December 2021), and married a different guy (not my other kids dad) and was unsure of if I'm able to keep this baby after he is born? I wasn't sure of... Read more »
You can. But expect CPS to pay you a visit at the hospital or soon thereafter. There are some advantages to you in this situation because you voluntarily terminated. And that you have a different partner and apparently made some strides in your life further increases the likelihood that you can...Read more »
My fiance has suddenly took off with the kids and has been gone without contact with me for 24 hours the last thing she said was that she was at her parents and that they're safe how long should I wait until I get a temporary restraining order to get my kids back.
I'm not sure there would be any penalties. Typically, an adoption from a termination case ends that court's involvement and vests full parental rights on the adopting person. They are then free to pass on that authority in any legal way - common examples would be through a parental power...Read more »
I am Canadian, my son's father is American. Support is being handled in Michigan, and custody in Ontario. Friend of the court said it's only valid from the time filed. So essentially, he's absolved of his parental responsibilities for the first 12 months of his life? When the... Read more »

It's not easy to get a new judge - in fact, it's nearly impossible without a substantial showing of wrongdoing. I assume your friend's attorney is unwilling to go down that road, perhaps for good reasons.
If your friend and her ex have joint legal custody, then she had an...Read more »
The available remedies depend on the facts and circumstances. Someone could move to have that judge recuse themselves and the case continue before a different judge. Of the extreme end of things, there could be a judicial tenure commission complaint and investigation. No remedy would necessarily...Read more »
