Thank you for the post, are you able to pay the amount of the judgement against you to regain possession of the vehicle?

no.

 

Lawyer: MShore, Attorney replied 8 years ago
ok, then unfortunately the car will sit in the impound until your bankruptcy is considered by the trustee. Rather than focus on regaining possession of the car, focus on filing your bankruptcy as a route to regain possession of the car for a sum less than what is currently being demanded.

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.
