Mich. high court: Biological dad can’t revoke parentage affidavit (access required)

A trial court properly denied a biological father’s motion to revoke an affidavit of parentage that the child’s mother and her long-term partner had signed, the Michigan Supreme Court has decided. In Helton v. Beaman, the Supreme Court said it agreed with the Court of Appeals that In re Moiles, 303 Mich. App. 59 (2013), wrongly held that a trial court is not required to make a best interest determination under 722.1443(4) when deciding whether to revoke an affidavit of parentage.
