Friend of the Court

Friend of the Court

FOC serves the 16th Judicial Circuit Court in the enforcement of all support, alimony, and parenting time orders entered by the court.

Macomb County Friend of the Court has implemented a new phone system with the intent of shortening wait times and better directing calls. Recently we have had reports of callers not reaching their destination in a timely manner.  For this, we greatly apologize.  In an effort to further improve the system, we invite you to fill out the following questionnaire regarding any recent issue you may have had.  This is not intended to report issues with specific employee experiences.  That can be handled through our grievance process. Follow the link to report on any phone system issues you may have experienced.  Please note, that due to high call volumes it is not uncommon to have hold times exceed 10 minutes.  Thank you for your participation, we hope this will help us better serve you here at Macomb County Friend of the Court.
