Customer Question
A relative of mine...

A relative of mine had an arrest warrant from PA, arrested in MI and now in custody after signing a waiver of extradition. How long should the handover from MI to PA take and is there a time limit when the person will be released if not taken up by the demanding state (PA)?

Lawyer's Assistant: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when was the warrant issued?

Warrant from PA, arrest in MI on Nov. 28

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

The person got a public defender, but he says just wait

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.
