One thought on “Livingston County Divorce Court”
My ex wife is seeing a felon with an extensive psychiatric history. The court agreed with me and ordered that he could not be around my children. She and her boyfriend became upset with the ruling and decided to punish me with false and meaningless accusations so both could obtain ppo’s against me. As the time came near to fight them in court, their lawyers wanted to play let’s make a deal. That deal was they would drop the ppo’s if I allowed them to see each orher and for him to be allowed to be around my children. Why does the court not recognize this abuse of the PPO system and the prudery they committed in regards that they were ” so threatened they needed ppo’s ” to only drop them to get what they want. Is this a loop hole in our system or are judges really that blind to justice they can’t see the truth. Are there consequences for obvious perjury in this matter?
