Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

CT does not have a statute making burial of tree stumps illegal. However, one should know that burial as opposed to removal can lead to creation of sink holes as the sump deteriorates underground. But there is no law in CT making it illegal.

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.
