New Case Regarding Child Custody

The Michigan Court of Appeal issued an opinion on December 5, 2017 regarding child custody and parenting time, where the parties have an Acknowledgment of Paternity, but no written agreement or Court Order regarding parenting time or Custody. In Natassia T. Sims v. Danny Darney Verbrugge, the Court of Appeals addressed the procedure by which an acknowledged father can gain custody or parenting time after an acknowledgement of paternity is signed.
