Best Interest Factors
If parents don’t agree, the court is supposed to decide custody and parenting time using the “best interests of the child” factors of the Michigan Child Custody Act. There will be a hearing in front of the Friend of the Court or a judge. The court may hear testimony from both parents and possibly from family members, teachers, expert witnesses, and others. The court may also consider other evidence, like school records and medical reports. From this, the court is supposed to make a wise and educated decision as to the future of the child. That did not happen in this case. In this case, the court clearly and recklessly bullied dad ad took sides with mom by minimizing mom's failures and wrong doings, disputing police officer testimony and much more. In short, this court was blatantly biased as hell and succeeded in doing little more than wasting a lot of our money and time while doing nothing truly evaluate the quality of my sons life.
