Thank you for using JustAnswer.

No, there is no such law. Where did you read this?

Actually my wife read it an indicated it was a new federal law.

But what is "it"? What website? That is, there's no law that says this, but it might be a misinterpretation of another law, so I'm trying to give you a better answer than simply "no, there is no law".

I am not sure, but I will check and see if she can resurrect the site. Thank you for your answer.

Sure. Again, there's no law (if there was, there would be many websites talking about it and decrying it, as well as consumer advocacy groups, lobbying groups, etc... talking about it).

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.

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.
