MyAdvo Legal Services

Thursday, May 30th, 2019

I contacted MyAdvo legal services in India with a simple request:

I had been pressured into being added to a trust in India and I now wanted to be removed from it. I wanted MyAdvo to contact the trust, send official notice that I was resigning, and follow through with the removal.

The original quote for this work was $50. Seemed reasonable for what I thought would be a few hours of work. It turned into a nightmare. Long story short, it took 6 months to follow through with this. The final total was several times the original amount quoted. I had to jump through several hoops, including getting my resignation certified by my state government (a.k.a. an “Apostille”).

Over the course of the 6 months, I found that communication with my MyAdvo case manager was very difficult, having to ask the same questions (or provide the same information) repeatedly in our e-mail threads.

I would not use their services again in the future.
