Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.

Who is holding Eulaya for? Also, did you explain the situation? Finally, when you say that your car was forfeited, does that mean it was just taken from you, tags and all?

I was sent a letter of forfeiture while I was incarcerated but lost the paperwork in transit and my federal attorney couldn't provide me with the letter of forfeiture cause she couldnt find it in the archives
Lawyer: TJ, Esq., Attorney replied 2 years ago

Hello again.

I apologize for any confusion in my prior response. I was using dictation and it apparently messed up my first sentence. I intended to ask who is holding you liable, and did you explain the situation to them? If so, what did they say?

Pardon me, dept. Of motor vehicles is saying I owe over $4000 cause my tags were never turned In and I don't have my forfeiture letter to prove my car was forfeited. Initially dmv just wanted proof of my incarceration but when I went there with the proof they then asked for a forfeiture letter which I don't have and its been 7 years since my arrest.

Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.
Lawyer: TJ, Esq., Attorney replied 2 years ago

Hi again.

The federal case should have a copy of the letter or other proof that indicates that your car was forfeited. Accordingly, you should be able to find what you need via PACER.

Have you tried that?
