Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: This is general information only for educational purposes only, and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.
For Court records, you can call (###) ###-####and ask for the record department. These documents should be open records, since they are court records (part of a child's names may be redacted or written as initials). This may be received for a nominal fee.
For neglect files, one would have to do an OPEN RECORDS request to MDHHS. Please read about this HERE. Because it has been a while, the records were likely sent to storage, so the request should be sent to the main address:
Capitol View Building*****br />Lansing, Michigan 48913
You can do the same thing for any police records - see HERE.
Note that due to the age of the case, some records may already have been destroyed. Also given the nature of the case, some records may be redacted/unavailable.
