Michigan Attorney General

The Michigan Attorney General is the chief law enforcement officer for the state of Michigan. We protect Michigan families from unfair financial practices through our enforcement authority in the areas of consumer protection, antitrust, corporate oversight, charitable organizations, and health care fraud.  We offer services to protect the most vulnerable citizens among us, including children, the elderly, victims of crime and those who are preyed upon by greed in its many forms: unfair, illegal or shady business practices, criminal conduct, abuse of power and public corruption. We identify parents who have the ability to pay support to their children but refuse to do so. Through child support prosecution and collection actions we’ve collected over $154 million, directly impacting the lives of over 12,500 children.  We also offer special programing that trains citizen to spot fraud and scams, and we teach school children how to be safe online and respond appropriately to bullying.
