Second opinion] There was a...
Second opinion] There was a document signed by my husband and me stating that our home would be divided between both trusts (second marriage). I challenged this at the time and was assured by Kathleen Hendrickson, Esq., that it would be the final home either of us was living in. I understand that is not accurate. Law Educator, Esq. helped me tremendously; however, I up to this point in time have gotten three different opinions. Law Educator, Esq., advied me that my late husbands half woud be divided 25 percent to his children's trust and 25 percent to my children's trust. I am totall satisfied with his legal opinion; however, I do not and cannot handle any upset at closing. Please advise, I need to know where I stand. Than you.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

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.

TonyApopka, FL

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.
