Good afternoon. Can you please share with me a little more about the situation? What was the hearing for? How was the other party notified and present and not you? Are you representing yourself?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
The hearing was requested for siblings visitation. Older brothers want to have visitations with their younger siblings. DHS/CPS would not allow the visits, so we asked for the courts help. They sent the document denying visitation, due to no one showing up in court. Family was not notified of any court hearing after submitting documents in the court house.
Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 11 months ago

Thank you for the reply. If nobody showed up, it would appear that was the basis for the denial. It did not have to do with an ex parte hearing, whereby it was just the Judge and another party behind closed doors, without anyone knowing. based upon what you shared, there was a hearing and the parties did not receive the property notice and as a result, the Judge simply denied it. However, if proper notice was not sent, there would be a basis to file a motion and ask for the order to be vacated and/or a re-hearing on this, advising that you never were placed on notice to appear and you have a right to be heard and this should be decided on the merits.

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.

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.
