Customer reply replied 8 months ago
no, she offered to make monthly payments of 50.00 but they told her that was not enough, she had to pay at least 200.00
Lawyer: DamienJD, Attorney replied 8 months ago

Hmm. So, she already attempted to work it out with the Sheriff. Has your friend considered a Chapter 13 bankruptcy?

She could also attempt a Motion to Postpone Sheriff's sale.

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.
