Customer Question
I "bought" a wedding...

I "bought" a wedding dress from a lady with the deal, no contract only text messages, that i would pay her when my income tax came in. now she is calling me saying i didnt hold up my end of the deal and threating to press charges. i have a one year old son so i was late on filing. i have recieved a small portion of my income tax but not all of it. what are my legal obligations and rights. does she have the chance to make a case against me

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Louisisna

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

I have called both my police department and her areas to make a civil dispute file so my side will be on file

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I have no way to contact her because everytime she calls me its from a blocked number

So when the portion came in, did you pay her with it? When is the rest going to be coming in and do you have evidence that you will receive more?

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.
