Legal Answers
36 Questions Answered

Q. When a income witholding is sent how long does it take for the payments to become regular?
A: You should contact the Michigan State Disbursement Office in Lansing, MI. This is the division responsible for receiving and dispersing child support. Is he still working? If yes, is it the same employer? If not, you should contact the Friend of the Court, as a new Income Withholding Order might have to be entered.
Q. If i got a speeding ticket a year ago reduced to 15 over is there and way now to get it reduced to 14 over for a job
A: No
Q. my husband and i separated a year and half ago, January 29, 2016. do I have to include him on my new health insurance
A: If there is no divorce action pending, or there's no Preliminary Injunction if an action is pending, there is no requirement to keep him on your policy. However, you should let him know so he can obtain coverage to avoid penalty under Affordable Healthcare Act.
Q. what happens if the non custodial parent gives only a week notice on new address? What are my options?
A: The question is what harm has been caused by giving only a week's notice? Does it have to do with parenting time? Was the move out of state and, if so, was permission to move out of state granted by the court? Was the move more than 100 miles from the residence of the minor child(ren)? How does the move affect the parenting time and/or custody arrangement?
Q. I have no rights to my child and am wondering why I still have to pay child support on him?
A: Until the child is adopted, you are responsible for the child's support. Termination does not absolve one of having to support his or her child.
Q. I was injured a few months ago when another car slid into mine in icy conditions. Can the other driver be held legally
A: Absolutely. It is the responsibility of each driver to keep control of his/her vehicle.
Q. Unmarried parents are splitting up and have a 4 yo daughter. What should I expect to be financially responsible for?
A: Your only responsibility is payment of child support, contribution toward health care insurance, and contribution towards childcare expenses.
Q. Updated law affect the record of former offender?
A: If a judge or jury found the offender guilty, or if the offender pleaded guilty, then the answer would be no, absent a successful appeal to the Court of Appeals. A successful appeal, however, will not result in the Court of Appeals reducing the felony to a misdemeanor. That is not within the Court's purview. If there has not been a finding of guilt by judge, jury or plea, speak with your attorney to see if a plea bargain can be reached to reduce the offense to a misdemeanor.
Q. My ex husband stole $50,000 worth of jewelry from me.
A: Not really, unless the police accept his claim of a false report, file charges and you are able to prove he filed a false report in retaliation.
