Often times when people think of child custody and visitation disputes, the rights of grandparents are often overlooked. In Michigan, there is a statute specifically designed to address the issue of grandparenting time.
Gov. Rick Snyder recently signed a Michigan law that places stricter time limits on welfare recipients. Specifically, the new law places a four-year lifetime limit on cash welfare benefits in Michigan. Enforcing this limit will save Michigan more than $60 million annually, however, opponents warn that this new law will leave tens of thousands without cash welfare assistance beginning in October, and will only further exacerbate the child poverty problem in Michigan.
