You can ask for rehearing in the case.

The case can be filed without you being present. However, you must be presented the opportunity to tell your side to the Court at the hearing. If this was not done, then your due process was violated. The hearing must be rescheduled to afford you the opportunity to defend yourself since you did not fail to show up, but the prison officials did not take you to the Court as your requested.

A positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating.

Thank you for your cooperation.

How , or what must I do to initiate this hearing, I sadly am.clueless
Lawyer: Phillips Esq., Attorney-at-Law replied 9 months ago

You need to file Motion for Rehearing on the case and state your reasons for the Motion just like you did in your post here. The Courthouse should be contacted on your behalf for Motion forms you can use to request for the hearing.

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.
