Customer Question
My friend is filing...

My friend is filing going through a divorce and he has some questions about where it can be filed.

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

North Carolina

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

He talked to one in Mississippi, but his ex-wife filed some type of separation paper in NC.

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

That should do it initially.

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.
