Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.

.

The item should be replaced with one of a comparable value as of the date that the item was stolen. Items lose value the instant they leave the store and are used. So if you had the item for a little while before it was stolen, the if would be worth something less then $250... How much less would depend on what it was and how long you had it before it was stolen.

.

.

thanks

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.
