The previous lawyer told me , she couldn't find any forms for this and simply sent me a link to forms for filing a small claim. Heck, I could have gone to the magistrate court's website and done that myself.

If the defendant is unknown, the defendant would be listed as a John Doe defendant; then during the discovery process the party may request the court to issue a subpoena to a third party to secure the identity of the defendant, if the third party has access to that information;

Then the plaintiff would amend the complaint to name the proper defendant.

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.
