Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.

If a defendant is not properly served, then any judgment against him is voidable ... i.e., such a defendant has the right to ask that the court vacate the judgment after a showing that service was improper. A judge would have to vacate the judgment on due process grounds.

Does that answer your question(s)? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied. Also, please remember to provide a positive rating via the stars (and note that your positive rating is the only way that I'll get credit for helping you, so it is much appreciated!). Thank you. :)

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.
