Change of Domicile / Moving with Your Children
"Can I move with my kids?"
What is Michigan grand-parenting time, and how do I obtain it?
In Michigan, a presumption exists that a fit parent's decision to deny grand-parenting time does not create a substantial risk of harm to the child. A grandparent in Michigan may need to petition for time with grandchildren if the parents are denying them access. To rebut this presumption, and win on the issue, the grandparent must prove by preponderance of the evidence that the parent's decision to deny grand-parenting time creates a substantial risk of harm to the child's mental, physical or emotional health
Do I need to keep paying support if I'm being denied parenting time in Michigan?
Michigan courts have held that duty to make support payments may be suspended if parenting time is denied unless the suspension of payments would adversely affect the children.
The answer to this questions is not clear, and one is strongly advised to speak to a Michigan family lawyer before taking action.
