MSC’s Weaver moving to state-owned Traverse City office building

Michigan Supreme Court Justice Elizabeth A. Weaver will be relocating her Traverse City office from a privately owned office building to the Traverse City State Building by the end of the year.

“I have said repeatedly over the years that I and my staff would move to a state-owned building in the Traverse City area just as soon as adequate state-owned space became available,” Weaver said in a court-released statement.

“Now that there is adequate space in the Traverse City State Building, we are going ahead with the move as quickly as possible. The lease for my current office requires giving 90 days’ notice to terminate, and the notice has been sent.”

According to Chief Justice Marilyn Kelly, “The lease for Justice Weaver’s current office is $67,364 and the estimated costs of buildout, moving, and related expenses are approximately $36,000. Relocating to the state-owned building is cost-effective because of the net savings of over $31,000 in rent in the first calendar year alone.”

The Traverse City State Building houses other Michigan government offices, including the departments of Agriculture, Human Services, and Treasury.

  1. I live in Pennsylvania.

    I am going to be firing the attorney who represented me in my divorce over 2-1/2 years ago. He is increasingly unresponsive and unprepared for valid consultation regarding my ex-husband’s current violation of our Property Settlement Agreement.

    How do you fire your attorney? Do I need to send a certified letter to him saying that I will no longer be retaining his counsel and to send me a final bill? Or is it more involved than that?

    Do I need to notify the County Courthouse where my divorce is filed when I choose a new attorney – or do I just choose a new attorney and if I wind up filing a complaint, the courthouse then receives the new attorney’s info from that?

    Also, do I have to pick an attorney who maintains an office in the county in which my divorce was filed? I have since moved about 45 miles away and two counties over – it would be more convenient to me to pick an attorney closer to home, but is it bad etiquette to make your attorney travel to a county courthouse that he doesn’t normally do business in and therefore may not have inside knowledge of the judges and any biases they may have…
    Any help and insight would be greatly appreciated — thanks!
