Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.

Your wife cannot legally prevent you from driving on her own. If your license is revoked by the state, etc., then you certainly wouldn't have the privilege any longer.

You can demand that your keys be returned to you....and if they refuse, you could get a new set of keys made or even file a civil claim in small claims court to recover your keys.

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.
