An article in the May 7, 2012 Michigan Lawyers Weekly notes that a decision by the Michigan Court of Appeals may mean that first-party insurers for both parents should split the cost of personal injury protection (PIP) benefits resulting from an auto accident, regardless of who has primary custody or whose car the child was in at the time of the accident. See Grange Insurance Co. v Lawrence. If a child regularly spends nights at the non-custodial parent’s house and has a room and personal belongings there, domicile can be established for purposes of the Michigan No-Fault Law.
