Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that this happened.

There unfortunately isn't any state or federal law that requires an employer to give employees an advance on their paychecks. You could ask your employer if this is something they offer, but it's entirely up to them.

Some banks offer direct deposit advances to customers who have their checks automatically put into their account. They charge fees, but that may be an option for accessing emergency cash. Or you could look into check cashing facilities near you. Many of them will accept a post-dated check, give you money, and wait to cash the check once you get paid.

Please rate my answer positively so I get paid for the time spent answering your questions. If you're on a mobile device, you may have to scroll to the left. Thank you.

Three H.Houston, TX

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.

TonyApopka, FL

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.
