My question involves child support in the State of: Michigan.
Is there anyone or any organization I can go to to help a relative in jail for non-payment of support??? He is a good person who has paid over the years and unfortunately had a visiting judge who did not know the details of the case and is known to be very strict and hard on child support issues and he put him in jail for 6 months! He does not have any record - never did anything wrong in his life ever and just paid a big amount 2 days before his trail as an agreement to stay out of jail. His court-appointed attorney did not show up and I talked to him and he said he thought he had someone covering it, but apparently they didn't make it! Justice is not being served here!
I don't want to hear from mother's who haven't received support. I am a woman myself and I believe that a man should support their children, but if you knew all the facts of this case you would side with my relative who always put his children first!
So, if anyone knows of anyone in Michigan I can go to, to talk to about my relative's case and help get him out of jail, or tell me how to go about helping him, please email me. *I can't afford an attorney for him and he can't afford one either- he is in the process of getting social security disability as he is disabled** Thank you for any advice you have!
