How to Contact the Friend of the Court
You may contact the Friend of the Court by telephone Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at (517) 543-6850.
You may access the Interactive Voice Response (IVR) 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, at (517) 541-2850. When you dial in, the voice will tell you to follow certain prompts by pressing numbers on your touch tone phone dial pad. If you choose the prompt that provides your case specific information, the voice will tell you to enter your FOUR DIGIT PIN number. The FIRST time that you dial in, the FOUR digit number will be the last four digits of your social security number. After you enter the last four digits of your SSN, the voice will tell you to enter ANOTHER four digit number (of your choice) in order to reset your PIN number and make it more secure. If you should forget your PIN number or need your PIN reset, you must contact the Michigan State Disbursement Unit (MISDU). You may contact the MiSDU by dialing the main IVR number and following the prompts to speak to a SDU representative.
You may email Friend of the Court staff members utilizing the email addresses set forth on the Friend of the Court Staff Page.
You may fax documents to the Friend of the Court at (517) 543-9980. It is helpful if you designate to whom the fax should be delivered as well as include your case number.
