Dear Customer,

Thank You for posting your question to just answer today. This is attorney Bill offering legal information specific to your concerns.

There is a limit on the amount that you can claim in the small claims court of $5,000 so depending on how much you believe you are due you may have to file in the Circuit Civil Court for amounts greater than 5k.

The procedure for either should include a preliminary demand letter to GE outlining the amount of your claim ang giving them the opportunity to pay this claim before you file the small claims suit.

This is a requirement of the small claims division that you have a final response from your adversary so that they had a chance to pay the claim before proceedings.

Please be patient for my follow up and answer when you request additional clarification or information and REMEMBER TO RATE POSITIVELY TODAY FOR THE INFORMATION RECEIVED.

Please remember to rate positively my response before exiting.

THIS IS HOW I GET A CREDIT FOR MY TIME AND RESPONSE

SO I HOPE YOU RATE 5 STARS TODAY

Thanks

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.
