Customer Question
Is it legal for...

Is it legal for the US government is asking me to pay back shipping fees?

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

Tina My state is Hawaii

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

No. Nothing yet. But I want to because I'm being told that I got to pay back $280 in shipping charges.

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

Yes, these shipping charges were created when I send stuff to my ex-boyfriend overseas (military).

Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. How did you learn that you had to pay shipping fees? That is, who contacted you and how? What are you being asked to do?

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.
