Customer Question
We are a non profit...
We are a non profit that merged with another non profit. We recently found out that this other non profit has been filing with the Corporation Commission using our business address, phone and having employees sign as board members, even though the business no longer exists. Is this illegal?

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.
