Could you clarify?

Is the Declaratory Judgment against you?

Is the Court now ordering you to pay the fee due?

How much is the past due fee?

Is the HOA willing to work with you in light of your dire circumstances?

Thank you for your cooperation.

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.
