Hello JACUSTOMER<

No there are not. The only law that exists is something called the "Sun Safety Law." This law only requires public employers to notify state employee who work more than 5 hours per week outdoors of the risks sun exposure.

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.
