ANSWER: That should not be a problem; for example, you can revise your future contracts with them to reduce the amount of compensation they will receive by the allocated amount that you have to pay on their behalf in premiums. However, you should wait to do this until their contract term expires and sign a new contract.

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.
