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.

I am currently in a custody battle with my ex boyfriend and our daughter is 6 months old. He has been threatening me and telling me he is trying to seek 50/50 custody of our daughter even though he has not helped financially and he drinks excessively. My parents went to get a photo of his car at the bar and I received Harrassing text from his friend that is also always at the same bar. He is also a convicted felon for aggravated battery so it really scared me. My questions are: can my ex use audio and text from our relationship prior to our daughter being born? And does his habitual nightly drinking and his friends text affect his chances of getting less custody? … read more
