Thank you for using JustAnswer.

Can you tell me more about the situation? Do you need a will for yourself or the person that gave you the power of attorney? Did that person die?

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.
