Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If you have a medical report regarding the cause for the delay in completing your court orders, this is grounds for the court to delay terminating your rights. The last thing the court wants to do in these cases is terminate your rights, but they need good cause proof to the court as to why you have not complied with the court orders. This means you need to get your doctor to go to court with you and testify in court as to why the court needs to give you additional time to comply with the court orders.
This is the ONLY WAY FOR YOU TO SAVE YOUR CHILD, you must get the medical documentation showing that your medical condition is the reason you could not comply with the court orders and how much more time you will need to comply. Also, if it is medically impossible for you to comply with those orders, the doctor needs to explain that to the court and you would ask the court to modify the orders to something you could comply with more easily.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
