Good afternoon,

I'm sorry that you were waiting --not sure how many attorneys are online today given the holiday weekend. In any event, to answer your question, the previous expert was correct -the only way a person could speak as a representative would be if they were a licensed attorney speaking on behalf of the individual.

I am not satisfied with that answer. I have used this approach in Arizona and had the guilty party remanded to my custody. My son. Is it different in California?.
Lawyer: RobertJDFL, Attorney replied 7 months ago

I'm sorry you are not satisfied. I'll opt out and open the question back up to other experts to further assist you. Please DO NOT rate the answer but leave your rating for the next expert who can assist you with this matter.

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.
