Thanks so much for your patience. Generally, there isn't much that you need to bring as a witness. If there were specific things you needed to bring with you or produce in court, it would have said as much in the subpoena.

Could I trouble you to phone me please?
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

If you absolutely cannot physically make it there, then you must call the court and ask if you can appear as a witness either over the telephone or some other communication. The court has to approve this request and if they don't, you have to show up physically, in person to provide your testimony.

I would love to have a phone call with you. It's $60, but it's often of extreme value to the thousands of people I've worked with. You should get a request for it soon automatically by the system and you can accept the request:-)

no thank you. How do I cancel payment? I would like to cancel at this time please.
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

Oh, it's no problem. You haven't been charged for a call. Did you get a chance to see the answer to your question? Did you have any follow up questions to that?

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.
