Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

No, unfortunately. Your criminal record will continue to show a Michigan felony conviction.

If the issue arises you can, of course, tell prospective employers, for example, that had the crime occurred in Georgia it would have only been a misdemeanor. And if you were ever in new felony trouble in Georgia, you could argue that it should be treated as your first felony offense, since the crime would have only been considered a misdemeanor in Georgia. But moving to a different state does not erase or reduce an out of state conviction.

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.
