Customer Question
In 2006, I contracted with...
In 2006, I contracted with Neptune Society for cremation of my husband and myself. My husband (of 48-years) died in a local hospital on 5/1/2015. As of today 6/8/2015 he has not yet been cremated. The funeral home blames personnel issues, doctors, and King County procedures. As you can imagine, this delay is very painful. They do not call me with any information, I must call them. Each time they delay the cremation, I experience his passing again.
Do I have any chance of asking for my $4000 back (after I have received his ashes)? $4,000 was the cost of both cremation packages.
Thank you for your time.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.

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.
