Customer Question
A police "incident" report was...
A police "incident" report was written up for me and a person of whom was involved in the incident. It was a "traffic incident" not an accident but was not written up as so due to the circumstances at hand. The police officer who handed me the incident report said it was not necessary to report it to my auto insurance. Should I take his advice or go ahead and report it to my auto insurance anyhow?

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.
