Customer Question
My girlfriend (We are not...
My girlfriend (We are not married) have been together for around 3+ years. We have 2 twin boys together, we have also lived in MI for over 2 years. She recently up and left, returning to her home state of CA. With no intentions of coming back. She has no money, no car, no job. Meanwhile, I have a house here I bought for our family, two cars, rooms and toys/food for boys. She has no chance of making it on her own. She wont reason with me, she just tells me to move out there. I can't quit my job and sell everything I own to move out to a state I've never been to. What can I do? She has "Sole custody" according to a lawyer I spoke to, since we aren't married.

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.

Mr. Kaplun clearly had an exceptional understanding of the issue and was able to explain it concisely. I would recommend JustAnswer to anyone. Great service that lives up to its promises!

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.
