I'm fighting a false charge of misdemeanor domestic violence that I was put on probation for. I want to know if I can get a medical marijuana card so that I can use marijuana edibles for pain and sleep purposes, while I am on probation without getting in trouble.
In Michigan, medical marijuana use is allowed under state law for qualifying patients with a medical marijuana card. However, if you are on probation, the rules can vary, and it's important to consult with your probation officer or legal counsel to determine how using medical marijuana may...View More
I was just thinking about divorce with him but, now I want to sue him for mental, physical as well as financial abuse. I moved from 30 years home town NJ to Michigan 2 years ago just to support he's new job. He hated my entire families and friends and end up I kind of stop talking to them and... View More
Best way to get started is to consult with a local divorce attorney and get the process started. While there is some precedent for suing a spouse for intentional torts, your situation may better support a cause for spousal support.
Keep in mind that Michigan is a "no fault" state...View More
In all cases where children are involved, whether as victims or witnesses, the police would contact Child Protective Services (CPS). That agency is responsible for the investigation, removal, and possibly placement of children in abusive or neglectful situations.
I just filed a ppo and 3rd parties against my ex that we have 2 previous domestic violence but I dropped in 2010 bc the court didn’t do anything after he broke his ppo 4x and the 2nd I didn’t show from fear etc. I want to press charges against both my ex and his girlfriend and will show up this...

You should contact your county prosecutor's office. You should also contact the police concerning any new allegations. Whether the prosecutor will "reopen" the 2021 case is discretionary and will depend on how they feel they can prove that case. Whenever you don't show up,...View More
I cannot tell exactly what you mean by the question. Are you saying a report was made to police and charges were not initiated? If that's the case, then the effect of the police report is minimal. Anyone can file a police report on just about anything; just filing a report doesn't mean...View More
It's not necessarily illegal to videotape on someone's property and what's otherwise in public view. You can tell him to stay off your property, but nothing stops him from recording from the street. If you feel harassed or intimidated, you can seek a PPO.
No communication or warning he didn’t file for divorce. For over a decade, he has been a serial cheater and psychologically cruel He has several bank accounts I don’t have access to. He left me stranded with broken down van. I have several health conditions prevent me from working. I’m... View More
You need an attorney. Please consider your local legal aid office as they may be able to assist. I am sure he very much would like you to settle everything without attorneys; doing things without attorneys sometimes works when there is trust and open communication. As you can see, his verbal...View More
Hard to say. Based on what you're saying, I'm not sure what relevant evidence this witness would be able to testify to that isn't hearsay. The prosecutor can, in some circumstances, use statements your girlfriend made to police, however.
My mother purchased her first home in August of 2020. To her dismay, when she was reviewing her paperwork she learned her ex had gotten his name on her deed. Her ex has been terrorizing her for over a decade. He has over 7 violent criminal charges for attacking her, nearly killing her once.... View More
That I was dating for the last 5 years. I alerted the BOD and management of the PPO and they haven’t responded, just saying that they have received copy of PPO. When I asked if he was working because I wanted to drop by the office they told me it was employee confidentiality and taunted me. I... View More
Your former boyfriend is responsible for adhering to the terms of the PPO; not the employer, who has no more obligation to you than to him. It is unreasonable to expect an employer or cooperative to manage what is a personal legal issue between you two.
Last year same exact thing happened but she didn’t show up so it got dismissed. So this is technically second one and it’s vs the state not her…. Should I take plea deal for probation or go to trial?? I know she will not show up if so but since it’s vs the state idk! Please help it’s... View More

Her mother called police cuz she bruised her knee from kneeing a door. No charges pressed. I went home following day. A month later was visited... View 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.
I hesitate about the notation "fines imposed"; that implies there is some sort of disposition on the merits. You really need to contact that court to figure out what is outstanding so you're not surprised in the future. These minor cases have a way of popping up when you least expect...View More

She was drinking and actually assaulted him multiple times physically with a vaccum tube. An article was published in the local newspaper stating he had... View More
How did the police become involved? It is possible for both people to be charged with domestic violence. Whether the video will help him depends on the entirety of the situation; the problem with video is that it only shows a moment in time. If I pummel you, then turn on my video just as you are...View More
I have my warranty deed, as well as the warranty deed of the woman I purchased my home from before Matthew and I were even married. In our divorce it states we have no claim to any belongings or property of the other. Also in decree, this will come up later, I had my last name legally changed back... View More
A forged deed is not valid. You can file suit to challenge the forged deed and regain possession of your property. The notary may also have liability, and the notary probably posted a bond in the amount of $10,000 from which you might recover. You should consult with an attorney because the...View More
Too many unanswered questions to give you an adequate answer. And you shouldn't give more details on a public forum like this. For now, just know that what could or will happen depends on the nature of the sexual touching.
My husband and I were involved in an altercation. It started with him taking my cell phone from me. I followed him to get it back and told him I’d leave if he returned it. I reached for his hand and the result was me being repeatedly hit and shoved. All while I was only after my phone and keys.... View More

Unfortunately, it's not a simple matter of telling the court "we're good". Your wife can express her thoughts about going forward to the prosecutor. Depending on the facts of the case, even that may not result in charges dropped.
