Customer Question
My son's biological father...

My son's biological father has recently tried to attempt to contact him after 15 years of neglect. He has boasted about his business and how he only claims a third of what he makes.. Ed Slanec Construction in Fraser MI. He tried at first to get contact but of course it went on for only a short time as we are used to. He said he would help us financially but has failed because his life does not make him available to our son who is now heartbroken again. Can I go to court for past child support and future?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Michigan

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No this is my first attempt

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

He boasts about how he has hidden his extensive income from the IRS

Good morning. How old is the child at this time? Did you ever make an attempt prior to this, to get child support?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
