Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post.

District magistrate court handles civil matters as well as low-level criminal matters. What is your son actually charged with? The number of the statute would be helpful.

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.
