That was good advise Dan. Maybe enough to jolt her into action. One more question, if I make financial arrangements with Sallie Mae, will they then stop pursuing her, and only look to me to pay the loan off completely?

No - you working with Sallie Mae will allow you to tell them what is going on with your granddaughter and because she is the primary on the loan, they will continue to pursue her.

My Expert was fast and seemed to have the answer to my taser question at the tips of her fingers. Communication was excellent. I left feeling confident in her answer.

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.
