Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

If you don't do your community service, you will not have completed your sentenc requirements and a warrant can issue for your arrest. Go and start taking care of this now. That way if it becomes an issue, you can give the judge an excuse for why you started it late and show him that you're working on it. Typically, as long as it doesn't look like you're deliberately ducking your court obligation, judges will give you an extension to finish it up.

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.
