The phone call request is actually auto-generated by the site, so you can disregard it if it's not something you're interested in.

However the site does charge a fee per question answered across the chat here, would you still like me to proceed?

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.
