My daughter bought a vehicle from a used car lot and paid cash. We were given the paperwork for the sale and waited till we could get the title and registration. When the time came, we were told that the title was not the latest version and we had to wait but were given a one year registration and plates. Now that year has past with many attempts and contacting them with trying to get a resolution. What are our options?

Kalispell, Montana 2002

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.
