The Ingham County Friend of the Court
first developed this Handbook and web page in 2000 to bring you information about
the Ingham County Circuit Court, Family Division and the operations of the office
of the Friend of the Court. Basic legal policies governing the Friend of the Court
are established by state and federal law. In addition, the Judges of Ingham
County have adopted procedures to insure full compliance with the law and help guarantee
fairness to the parties.
Domestic disputes are difficult and
challenging for the parties to the dispute. It is the children, and the “best
interests of the children” that is the major focal point
of judicial concern, and the concern of Ingham County Friend of the Court.
If you are involved in a domestic
dispute it is advisable that you review the Ingham County Handbook so that you fully
understand the principles that will be applied in your case. It must also be remembered,
however, that there is no specific rule that applies to each set of circumstances.
When the dispute cannot be resolved between the parties, your case may have to be
heard by a Referee or a Judge.
We hope that you find this Web
Site and Handbook helpful. If you believe that there is information that needs
to be updated or changed, please feel free to contact your caseworker at the Ingham
County Friend of the Court.
Harry Moxley, Deputy Court
