Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

There is no limit in the statutes as to how much additional time a court can give on extension. Any extensions of time in a case is purely a discretionary function of the judge. So, it is up to what the judge believes reasonable based on the good cause you present to the court.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback by clicking on the 5 stars at the top of your page, as the experts are not employees of the site and get no credit for spending time with customers unless they leave positive feedback. Thank you.

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.
