Customer Question
I have a house...

I have a house guest who refuses to leave

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Texas

Lawyer's Assistant: Has any paperwork been filed?

Yes I filed a notice of eviction with the Constable soffice last Friday

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

Yes, I spoke with a legal assistant today. She informed me that since my guest is a border rather than a tenant that a notice by the Constable's office to evict was not even necessary. However the guest is now wanting access to my home and has threatened to call the police. She has also indicated usage of my home address on her driver's license as well as receiving mail at my home. I just learned this moments ago.

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.
