Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.

In Washington, claims for breach of a written contract must be brought within 6 years of when the breach occurred. When you signed the contract does not matter for the purpose of calculating the statute of limitations. The contract could have been signed 50 years ago, but if they breach of that contract occurred in the last 6 years, a claim for breach of contract could still be brought against you.

I hope this answers your question. If I can clarify anything at all for you, please do not hesitate to ask. It is my pleasure to assist you further if necessary....

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.
