If you fail to appear here then it could be a fine, legal fees, or probation here.You really want to appear and stall this, bring some documents maybe not all and avoid the contempt.And you can still file Chapter 7 here , the sooner the better.It would end the harassment and discharge the debt involved and any others you might have.

I appreciate the chance to h elp you again and wish you the best.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.

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.
