Hello,

Yes it would be in violation with zoning laws as well as laws against operating a business in your home without the proper permits and licenses. You can not charge admittance to a party held in a residence.

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.

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.
