Customer Question
My ex-wife recently filed...

My ex-wife recently filed a motion for modification and served me the paperwork. However, she did not put the correct address on the motion and I never received the notification to appear for the court date. I would have appeared and would have had representation. What can I do?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Wisconsin.

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

No.

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

No, just that.

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.
