I am being sued by Midland Financial on a credit card debt. The suit has gottem to the point of Midland making a motion for Summary Judgement. According to what I have pickek up thru the net their logic for this judgement is standard fare in their industry. First question, if the debt has already been written off is this debt still an "open account"?
Secondly, how do i proceed to stop the judgement. i sadly confess, i probably did not do what i should have done from the start.

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.
