I filed an answer...

I filed an answer to a complaint a few days ago. May I still file a counterclaim without filing a motion? I am acting pro-sa

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Michigan

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

It is a claim filed by a note holder of a Company that I was one of two managing partners. I did not sign the note personally only on behalf of the Company. The Company folded when he called in the note. The claim is against the defunct Company, myself and the other managing member. I filed an answer on behalf of myself (only).

Thank you. I filed the answer by direction of the court via online. When I file the amended answer do I still have to have the Plaintiffs attorney served since he will get the notification on line?

Precisely, lawyer gets it online, but you can send a courtesty copy but not mandatory.

Kindly rate me 5 stars.

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.
