Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
I am so sorry that this has happened.You have good facts to go back to court and seek modification.Perhaps short supervised visits are warranted.I would hope CPS would validate the complaint of medical neglect.They could be a witness at your motion to modify.You can file this yourself.There really is not excuse for a parent to not medicate the child and act in their best interests.The judge likely agrees and modifies greatly the custody/visitation based on these issues.
Forms to file
The threshold requirement to change custody under Michigan divorce and Michigan custody law is “proper cause or change in circumstances” which is the legal term of art to describe the good basis to change custody. A court will not consider a request to change custody unless it is first shown that there is proper cause or a change in circumstances sufficient to warrant a review of a prior child custody determination.
Your facts here appear to meet the threshold to modify as the children were endangered.
I appreciate the chance to help you today and wish you the best.
