Customer Question
Hi Pearl I’ve received...

Hi Pearl I’ve received a letter saying that I have failed to make payments and that I’m at risk of being found guilty of contempt to court. But I cannot find another court date that I have missed. I went to the last 2 so I’m really unsure of where I stand. As the paperwork has come with a stamped envelope but addressed to them and not the courts which I find weird. Can you please try and make sense of all this and help me out please.

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any papers in family court?

No I’ve just received this and well it kind of made me nervous, so was going to see where I stood before I send if everything that they have asked for

Lawyer's Assistant: Family law varies by state. What state are you in?

I’m in WA and it’s actually to do with a rental property that my ex destroyed and since I’m the only one that showed up to court I’m liable for the bill

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No I can send you a copy of the paperwork if that helps

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
