What is the Friend of the Court?
The Friend of the Court is a division of the Circuit Court; we share ours with Grand Traverse and Antrim Counties. The Friend of the Court is not a division of the Prosecuting Attorney's Office . Public Act (1982 PA 294) makes the office responsible for:
- investigating, reporting and making recommendations to the Circuit Court on custody, parenting time ("visitation") and the amount of child support
- providing mediation sessions to resolve child custody and parenting time disagreements
- collecting, recording and sending out all support payments ordered by the Court
- initiating enforcement of all custody, support and parenting time ("visitation") orders entered by the Court
