Thanks so much for your patience on this. Generally, if you made an agreement in writing that you were going to purchase the timeshare, then you'll be bound to it, even if you did it through text message. However, you have to agree to all of the material terms of the contract before it becomes enforceable. Thus, if someone just asked if you wanted a timeshare and you said yes, but you didn't agree on a price, timeframe, time of performance, or anything else, then it is likely that those terms of the contract cannot be enforced at all. What other questions did you have for me?

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.
