Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Do you owe her money? Have you reported the blackmail?

here is the thing, we were couples before and we've rent a house together early this year, and the contract date is from May 2017 to May 2018, we pay the whole rental fee for one year, total is $ 25500. At the end of May this year, we broke.

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.
