In Vermont, if a business issues a Money Order that gets lost in the mail and the purchaser lost the receipt, is the business required to maintain record or the purchase and make it available to the buyer?

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

Reported yes, filed no. The store is uncooperative.

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

The Money Order was to Vermont DMV, and they have not received. Store will not cooperate to see if it was deposited, or cashed.

Lawyer's Assistant: Regulations vary from place to place, so can you tell me what state this is in?

The issuer of the money order should cooperate and assist with tracking so that if possible this can be rectified. Otherwise a claim for payment could be pursued in court.

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.
