Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.

Ask Your Own Legal Question

So here you argue no good cause to reopen the judgment and to allow a retrial.Argue that defendant was negligent int this matter and the court should not grant this.Argue any other points you have in your pleadings.I just don't see judge reopening this when clearly they were negligent in all of this.I think you have good arguments to have this over ruled.I don't think they can meet their burden to show this wasn't caused by their negligence and failure to file answer.

I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Thanks

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated

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.
