Parental Rights

Parents are the absolute lifeline to the growth, development, and future of their children. Parents occupy a special position with respect to their children. This special relationship is recognized by law and protected through the legal enforcement of parental rights. Parental rights are the constitutional powers vested in parents to exercise responsibilities in caring for their children.

The law allows a parent to make decisions regarding their child until they reach the age of 18. Even after they reach the age of majority, if your child has special needs, you should have the priority in the care and decision making for him or her, not the courts.

If your parental rights are being threatened or violated in any manner, a Detroit family law attorney can help. Attorney Allison Folmar is an experienced family law attorney practicing in Detroit, MI.

Medical Kidnapping

While parents have a right to decide what medical treatments their children receive, state agencies can often unfairly take that decision away from them citing a  “Compelling State Interest”.

Divorce & Child Custody

Michigan is a “no-fault” divorce state, meaning spouses do not need to prove that the other caused the divorce in some way. In several other states, it is necessary to show that one of the spouses did something wrong, such as adultery or being in jail for a period of time.

However, in Michigan, it is sufficient to show that the marriage has irretrievably broken down and the spouses do not believe they can continue to be married. At least one of the spouses will be required to testify to this fact, usually through an affidavit filed with the court.

There are several legal rules and principles that dictate how a Michigan divorce is filed, where it is filed, and when it is filed. For instance, in order to file for divorce in Michigan, either you or your spouse must have lived in the state for at least 6 months before filing. In addition, you are required to file the divorce at a court in the local county where you (and the children have lived.

Sometimes, determining how these rules apply to your case can be straightforward. Other times, it will be incredibly complicated, requiring the assistance of an experienced Detroit area divorce attorney.
