It’s time for a change… NOW!!!
For far too long, many men have been held hostage monetarily. Being wrongfully accused, they have their livelihoods threatened and wages garnished to pay child support for children they DID NOT FATHER. This is fraud at its worst. Unfortunately, the State of Michigan does not have laws that protect men from paternity fraud, even though we have the ability to positively determine paternity through DNA testing. Although some progress has been made over the last few decades, these archaic laws must go, NOW!
This is a petition to amend the REVOCATION OF PATERNITY ACT, by removing all statues of limitations on filing found in Section 722.1437.
REVOCATION OF PATERNITY ACT Act 159 of 2012
AN ACT to provide procedures to determine the paternity of children in certain circumstances; to allow acknowledgments, determinations, and judgments relating to paternity to be set aside in certain circumstances; to provide for the powers and duties of certain state and local governmental officers and entities; and to provide remedies.
History: 2012, Act 159, Imd. Eff. June 12, 2012.
722.1437 Action for revocation of acknowledgment of paternity; filing; affidavit; order for blood or tissue typing or DNA identification profiling; forwarding copy of order to state registrar; vacating acknowledgment of parentage; amending birth certificate; representation by attorney not required.
Sec. 7. (1) The mother, the acknowledged father, an alleged father, or a prosecuting attorney may file an action for revocation of an acknowledgment of parentage. An action under this section shall be filed within 3 years after the child's birth or within 1 year after the date that the acknowledgment of parentage was signed, whichever is later. The requirement that an action be filed within 3 years after the child's birth or within 1 year after the date the acknowledgment is signed does not apply to an action filed on or before 1 year after the effective date of this act.
