Hello,Thank you for using Just Answer. I want to provide you the best service I can. Please feel free to ask any follow up questions you have.I am an attorney with 30 years of experience; I hope to provide you information that will help you in resolving your question.There are several of these websites that engage in this conduct. They falsely claim that they are doing some sort of public service, but they really are profiteering by charging people to remove the information.There have been some attempts in class action suits to shut them down by suing them for extortion. You may have some success pursuing such an avenue with private counsel. Often a demand letter from an attorney will cause the website to pull the data pertaining to your husband. This link may be helpful to you in finding an attorney:http://www.legalmatch.com/law-library/article/extortion-lawyers.htmlHere are some references that may be useful to you:http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/are-mug-shot-websites-legal.htmlhttp://scholarship.law.ufl.edu/flr/vol66/iss2/8/I want you to be comfortable and satisfied with my attempt to assist you. Please, if you have ANY follow up questions, feel free to ask. Please note that I am generally unavailable Friday evening through Sunday. I hope the information I have provided is useful to you and that I have earned a positive rating from you. It costs you nothing extra, and is the only way I get credit for my attempt to assist you. If you are dissatisfied with my response PLEASE let me know before giving me a negative review so that I may try to be of better assistance. Or if you prefer, let me know and I can “Opt Out” and your question can be re-posted without additional cost to you. I will be fair to you and only ask the same from you.Good luck, Please note: Information given is not legal advice. Only your local attorney can give legal advice. I can't establish or accept an attorney-client relationship with you. All posts are available for public viewing.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

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.
