A just because gift.
Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 3 months ago

Thank you. No, they would not be able to take it back, unless they have a legal basis to do so. By that, I mean they would need to show this was not a gift but a loan or that the money was conditioned upon something that did not happen. If the voluntarily gave the money, they could not just take it back and if something happened down the road, which makes them regret it or there is a falling out, it does not allow them to just get the money back unless there was an agreement to repay.

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.
