Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

You need to talk to your son's lawyer to make this come about, but, yes, the judge can dismiss the case before the court date and order your son released if he wishes to. Here, since the DA agrees that a dismissal is appropriate, the dismissal will be granted and it's only a question of when. Your son's lawyer can help this get expedited.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

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.

Just moved from Michigan to start new life after a traumatic divorce. Got an apartment in my name only. Met a guy at the pool here and we befriended one another. He just moved from Connecticut to live with this girl he met online here at apartment and decided it wasn't going to work out. We exchanged numbers and began talking. I'm in financial hardship and he seemed like a really nice teddy bear type of guy and he is an ex marine. I suggested he stay with me as he is new to area just like me till we can work something out.
