The Michigan Child Abuse and Neglect Central Registry

The Michigan Administrative Hearing System Benefit Services Division conducts hearings for persons who wish to have their names expunged from the Michigan Child Abuse and Neglect Central Registry. The Michigan Child Protection Laws have recently changed. To request an expunction hearing from the Benefit Services Division, the request for expunction and hearing must be filed with the local Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) office. For additional information about the Michigan Child Abuse and Neglect Central Registry, please refer to the DHHS Children's Protective Services website.
