Customer Question
My wife was recently...

My wife was recently threatened to sign a document of debt from a business partner that had purchased my wife's accounting business and still owed her 75,000. My wife went into another business with him and he decided to bail from the new business, of course he wanted his money invested back so he stated that if my wife did not sign the financial document that he owed her the difference she would never get a dime from him because nothing was in his name

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

My recommendation would be to file a breach of contract action. That would essentially stop any collection attempts from continuing.

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.
