Unless the lien is paid or satisfied it cannot be removed. Having said that, the lien holder does not want to wait forever for payment. So the best advice is to call and negotiate the amount of the lien. Typically you or an attorney can get the lien reduced by one third. But try it yourself first as the lawyer will charge you for his time and work. if you are not successful, go to the site findlaw.com and look for an attorney who handles civil litigation. Please accept my answer if you are satisfied so that I am paid for helping you. Otherwise, you will pay for this service but I am not paid. Thanks.

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.

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.
