I have a wrongful...

I have a wrongful Lien and I need to file suit to have them remove it. Where can I find the right petition to file. As my attorney has instructed that he once filed they would probably remove it since its false. I have sent demand letters already.

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?

Trying to find the right petition online to download and file. I have everything else.

Lawyer's Assistant: Where is the property located?
