Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that this happened. When a case is dismissed without prejudice, that means you're allowed to refile the case with a new case number. If you cannot afford the filing fee, you can request a waiver. The judge is unfortunately not required to reopen a case or look at any evidence on a case after it's been dismissed. Look at the judge's reasons for dismissing the case and make sure the new Complaint doesn't raise the same issues. The other option is to appeal, but there is a 30 day time limit, and that can be more time consuming and expensive than refiling. Note that in some locations, small claims cases cannot be appealed. Please rate my answer positively to ensure I get credit for the time I spend helping. If you are on a mobile device, you may need to scroll to the right. Thank you.

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.

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.
