Hi, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you, please give me a moment to review and possibly research answers to your question.

Expert:  DrakeLAW replied 11 months ago.

Did you file the divorce on your own? What type of ex parte order did you attempt to get? Is your ex husband still in Michigan with your son? Does your son attend daycare or school? Are you still in contact with your ex husband?

The answers to these questions will really help me help you. Thanks.

I did thinking it would be simple and now he is upset. An ex parte order regarding custody. Yes still in Michigan. No school or day care but he is non verbal and Autistic. Yes I am still in contact and he is continually sending me taunting messages regarding him having our son. The divorce was filed less than two weeks ago.
