ICLE | Referee Hearings Before the Friend of the Court
Referee Hearings Before the Friend of the Court
On-Demand Seminar (Posted 09/18/23) | Level: Basic
Cosponsored by the Family Law Section of the State Bar of Michigan

Each Michigan circuit court has its own Friend of the Court (FOC) office, and every office operates differently. This can lead to confusion for family law attorneys who practice in multiple counties. Hear from our experts from Wayne County; Kent County; Oakland County; and Grand Traverse, Antrim, and Leelanau County about how each different FOC office handles motions and investigations, alternative dispute resolution, custody and parenting time, support, and postjudgment and enforcement issues.

Watch so you can:

  • Understand the types of motions that are referred to the FOC and how each office handles investigations
  • Know the types of alternative dispute resolution available through different FOC offices
  • See how parenting time and custody cases are handled by the FOC in different counties
  • Determine the types of spousal support and child support issues heard by the FOC
  • Understand the postjudgment matters the FOC handles and the enforcement mechanisms available in different circuits
