This is general information and not legal advice.  Interpretation and application of the law depends on the specifics of your case.  You should ALWAYS consult an attorney to discuss any legal matter that you may be involved in.  Just because you can watch a video online to show you how to install plumbing, it doesn’t make you a plumber.  Similarly, just because you have access to general legal information on the internet, it doesn’t make you a lawyer.  Be smart.
