Could Michigan soon have an automatic 50-50 custody bill?

Michigan parents may want to take note of House Bill 4691, the Michigan Shared Parenting Act. This bill -- which offers automatic 50-50 custody to divorcing parents -- could become a state law. Last Friday, an activist group in favor of the proposed measure gathered at the downtown Grand Rapids courthouse to show their support for the legislation.

International child custody disputes: Here's what you should know

International child custody disputes are particularly more likely to happen to individuals who have lived overseas and had a baby with a foreign partner, or to individuals who have been married to a foreign spouse. If a dispute over child custody comes up, the foreign spouse might travel with your child to his or her home country and never come back. Doing so, however, could be a violation of international child custody laws.
