Regarding parenting time during the Covid-19 pandemic, the Michigan Supreme Court issued a directive indicating parenting time Orders remain in effect stating:

"The Supreme Court wants to remind parents that all court orders for a child’s custody, parenting time and support are still in force. Only a new court order can change that. Parents should continue to follow their court order.

If future government decisions restrict travel or, if a child’s safety is an issue, parents should work together to keep the child’s access to both parents as close to the normal arrangement as possible. Remember that children might also be nervous about current events and need reassurance from parents. If it is necessary to share parental responsibilities in ways different than the court order provides, parents should cooperate with each other to further the child’s best
interests. If parents are not able to agree between themselves how to do this, their court order continues to control what they should do."

Gives us a call if you have questions, need an estate plan reviewed or need your Will done.

A “not guilty” verdict! I’m very happy for a client of mine who was accused of domestic violence by her boyfriend. She was prosecuted and we declined a plea agreement. I would love to take all the credit but I can’t. She was great on the witness stand and he just wasn’t. I’m going to keep her name private but we wish her the best.

'My wife is a cheater' written on house set ablaze

As subtle as Sherman's stroll through Georgia...Maybe just filing for divorce is a better response than racking up felonies.

ARVADA, Colo. — A house heavily damaged by fire had an unusual message written on the outside, the words "My wife is a cheater." Firefighters responded to a home around 1:30 a.m. on Tuesday for reports of an

Michigan Estate Taxes

Ever wonder how large your estate would need to be before there were Michigan or federal death taxes? The amounts may surprise you.

As of December 31, 2004 there are no Michigan estate or death taxes. The Federal estate tax will only affect estates over $5,000.00 as of 2013.

Keep Your Car In A Michigan Bankruptcy

You don't have to lose your car when you file for bankruptcy.

You can keep your car in a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy in Michigan by reaffirming or redeeming the debt or surrender the car if you don't want it.

Bankruptcy Stops Michigan Garnishments

Bankruptcy automatically stops all Michigan garnishments and any amounts more than $600 garnished can be recovered.

Keeping Tax Refunds in a Chapter 7 Michigan Bankruptcy.

We're trying something new by adding short videos to our blogs. No idea if viewers/readers will like it or give it a collective shrug. In the spirit of the tax season, here is a blog on how to keep your tax refunds and still dump your debt in bankruptcy.

By using the right bankruptcy exemptions, your lawyer can keep you Michigan and Federal tax refunds in Chapter 7.

Headlight flashing OK, Missouri judge says

Have you ever flashed your headlights to warn of an active speed trap? It's not common practice in this area but it is in others like St. Louis. So the cops came up with a great idea: Start ticketing those meddling drivers flashing their lights. Fortunately, flashing lights is a protected form of speech under the Constitution. Flash away, my friends.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — It's a common practice among drivers who pass through a speed trap: Flash your headlights at approaching cars as a warning to slow down. Now, a federal court judge in Missouri says penalizing drivers for the headlight flash violates their First Amendment right to free speech.

I was recently listed as an expert witness in a bankruptcy malpractice lawsuit to testify as how the defendant royally screwed up the debtor's bankruptcy case. What your attorney does not know can really affect your case.

Woman claims lawyers should have told her divorce would end her marriage

Without further comment, mainly as I am at a loss for words, I present this:

A British woman attempted to sue her former lawyers for professional negligence, claiming that, alongside a number of other allegations, they failed to advise that finalising divorce proceedings would inevitably cause her marriage to end.

Police: Oklahoma man, 33, killed stepfather with 'atomic we**ie'

I hear he has 4 different ways to kill someone with a noogie but that may just be tough guy talk he made up to scare his cellmate.

A 33-year-old man in Oklahoma allegedly killed his stepfather after a fight over the holidays by yanking underwear up the stepfather's back and over his head so that the waistband was around his neck, authorities said.

10 Michigan women deserve to be freed from prison, group says

I am a pretty liberal guy. I am all for second chances and trying to see something from the other point of view but when you go buy a hatchet, come home, and hit your husband with it 16 times then stab him 20 times my sympathy level drops. If you have time to go buy the hatchet, you have time to cool off and go see a divorce lawyer. I think saying that she "deserves" freedom is a bit much.

The Michigan Women's Justice and Clemency Project announced this week it was filing petitions for clemency with Gov. Rick Snyder for the women, who were all convicted of first- or second-degree murder and have been behind bars for years and, in some cases, decades.

Injured hunter chooses death over paralysis

This is a nightmare story. Not sure there are any lessons to take from it. Really tragic. I suppose make sure you have a living will with end of life decisions written out would be my take as an attorney but whatever. I feel really bad for this guy and his family.

The Indiana man asked that a breathing tube be removed after he injured his spine falling from a tree.

Australian loses compensation case for s*x injury

I don't do employment law but I found it interesting that, at least in Australia, an employee may not collect worker's comp benefits when injured having s*x in a motel on a business trip when a glass light fixture falls on her face. Govern yourselves accordingly, mates. The problem I have with it is it was not a s*x related injury. It was getting your face bashed in by an object during the activity. There must be more to it.

Australia's highest court denied workers' compensation to a government employee.

Detroit mayoral hopeful Mike Duggan racks up 10 speeding tickets in 5 years: 'No excuse for it'

He is right. There is no excuse for a lawyer, let alone a former prosecutor, to have any points on his record. Get a lawyer buddy to handle the matter and plea the ticket to a 0 point infraction like impeding and pay the fine. Newbies out of law school can handle this.

The last two were on Jan. 18 in Highland Park (40 m.p.h. in a 30-m.p.h. zone) and then April 8 in Royal Oak (50 in a 45 zone). The rest of the tickets for 10 m.p.h. or less over the limit span metro Detroit and the state, from police in Detroit, Farmington, Redford Township, Dearborn Heights, Oak Pa...
