Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.

There should be no issue with doing this. You simply need to file a motion to reclassify the case to limited civil, or obtain a stipulation (agreement) from the opposing side to that effect. The other side should have no problem agreeing, as refiling in limited civil just restricts their potential liability, it does not hurt them in any way.

I hope this helps. If I can clarify anything at all for you, please do not hesitate to ask. It is my pleasure to assist you further if necessary. If I have answered your question, I would be very grateful if you'd take a moment to positively rate my service to you so that I may receive credit.

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.
