I went to the SOS website for CA and I did not see an agent locally only the one in Southern Ca. When I contacted CSAA to ask about their agent they gave me the name of the place in SCal but the wrong street address and said they don't have a name of a person to write the name of the company.
Can you south CA agent. Can also call them and anonymously ask.Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”

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.
