Nifster, under this law
a parent will not even be able to safely apply for a drivers license in the State of Michigan.
a parent will not even be able to safely apply for a drivers license for their child in the State of Michigan.
Ahem, Don’t you need one of those to be able to V.O.T.E ?!?
(vi) Applying for or obtaining an enhanced driver license or enhanced official state personal identification card for the respondent, a family member, or the child.
which is defined up at the top as:
(g) “Enhanced driver license” and “enhanced official state personal identification card” mean those terms as defined in
section 2 of the enhanced driver license and enhanced official state personal identification card act, 2008 PA 23, MCL 28.302.
Under this law, a custodial parent can be at risk for performing their ordinary parenting duties.
Since when is obtaining your child’s medical records an indication that parent is a risk of abduction?
It is much more likely that it indicates that they are changing doctors.
It is an act all parents (custodial and noncustodial) do to be a good parent.
Since when is obtaining your child’s school records an indication that a parent is a likely child abductor? IT IS NOT.
It is an act done by all good parents.
Was this bill written by children who get bad report cards?
And a parent obtaining their child’s birth certificate?
First of all, most parents already have that at home and on file. But they probably only have one copy.
When a divorce happens, the other parent obtaining a copy for their records is natural. It does not indicate child abduction is imminent.
Or, say a storm comes along (Katrina, Sandy, etc.) and damages your existing files. Getting a new record is not an indication of abduction.
This law is WAAAAAY out of bounds.
