Court of Appeals Publishes New Case Regarding Custody and Acknowledgments of Paternity

The Michigan Court of Appeal issued an opinion in December regarding parenting time and child custody, where the parties have an Acknowledgment of Paternity, but no written agreement or Court Order regarding custody and parenting time. In Natassia T. Sims v. Danny Darney Verbrugge, the Court of Appeals addressed the procedure by which an acknowledged father can gain custody or parenting time after an acknowledgement of paternity is signed.
