Now, simply traveling to another nearby state (actually just purchasing the tickets to travel) can get you accused of planning a crime - the crime of 'child abduction (of your own children).
Simply meeting any ONE of the many factors on the list is enough for you to be punished as a pre-criminal, in civil court, without any of your usual rights to an attorney, etc. etc. etc.
Welcome to the new America !!!
Where every legislator is an illiterate dweeb.
Note: It just takes one Michiganian to speak up. This same legislation has been sidelined/tabled/deep sixed in approximately 30 states now - just by one person speaking up.
If nobody speaks up, then the law passes by unanimous vote of all the dweebish legislators.
But then, perhaps Michiganians don't deserve to live in a free state?
Anybody awake up there?
Want to be able to pick up your child's school records without fear of having your door kicked in at 2am by the local police to take your children into custody?
How about your child's medical records? Are they important to you?
How about your child's birth certificate?
How about your right to have family members living in another state without being accused of this precrime? No? (the 'strong family connections to another state clause)
How about your right to not have family members living in your current state? No? (the 'lack of strong family members living in Michigan clause)
etc. etc. etc.
Under this law, every parent is a potential abductor meeting 3-5 of these insane factors.
Snooze well Michigan...
While your Legislators sell your rights down the toilet.
You have over reacted on this big time. There isa requirement of establishing probable cause in court that one of the parents is going to violate a custody agreement. There are plenty of cases where one parent tales a child and flees to another country.
I do not know what your personal circumstances are but I think they are coloring your understanding of what the bill requires
Declaring everyone to be a criminal in advance and no trial needed, sounds a bit like tyranny to me.
But what do I know...
