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.

With land in MI, her Heirs take, which will be her issue surviving and her surviving Spouse, all as Tenants In Common. Hire a MI attorney to search the Title, determine Heirs and record an Affidavit of Heirship, unless there is a Probate. The former will be the Heirs' recorded source of title.
Your brother and sister have no obligation to share your mother's power of attorney or your mother's trust with you in a strict legal sense. If your mother is living, then it is likely the trust is revocable and she is the only present beneficiary of the trust, and no one else is entitled...Read more »
What does your deed say about a property owners association? Unless it existed at the time you bought, or existed when a single person/entity owned the land before subdividing the land, I don't see how you can be FORCED into joining an association.
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 »

This will likely depend on the length of the delay in receiving the payment. Generally, employers can change their payroll schedule without notice (ex. changing pay date from Mondays to Fridays), but there may be payment deadlines imposed by Michigan state law that your employer cannot exceed.
The home is in her name. Her domicile is in Texas. There will not be probate in Texas, no property. She also has 4 adult children. Who will receive the home according to probate in Michigan. Trying to sell currently over 100,000. Can her spouse sign a quit claim deed to a certain person?
According to Michigan’s rules of intestate succession (when someone dies without a will), as of 2021, the surviving spouse inherits the first $243,000 plus 3/4th of the value of the remaining assets. In short, assuming the market value of the house is $243,000 or less, the house solely belongs to...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.
My brother was in a terrible motorcycle accident and is currently on a ventilator. He has never been married and has no children and lives byhimself. My sister is trying to get legal guardianship without the consent of myself and my other brother. How can I handle this?
Hi. It looks like you’re in Virginia so the law may differ from Michigan’s where I practice. However, generally, consent is not required from all interested parties. Yet, as an interested party, you do have the legal right to object to your sister’s appointment as guardian if you believe she...Read more »
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 mother is 97yo. She has no property that she owns and no car. She is in hospice and close to death. Her assets include only 3 POD CDs, a checking account (current values < $50,000 for monthly recurring bills; one credit card with a balance of < $100; a Savings account of just over $1,000;...

Short answer is no. If she has no assets to be probated , and no will to be admitted, there’s no need to open an probate estate in the court. Absent opening an estate in probate court, there’s no legal requirement to publish notice to creditors as they can only file claims against probate assets.
