Customer Question
My Son co-signed...

My Son co-signed for a co-worker for a motorcycle. The guy is not paying. Can my son force him to return the motor cycle ? Can they garnish my son's wages?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Iowa

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Not that we know of.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Also advice on his girlfriends high school children. Their Dad died - No money for the kids. Can their Mom get state aid? They never got a divorce-just not living together.

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.
