LawyerGreg, Expert

Hello, my name is ***** ***** JustAnswer. Thank you for reaching out. I will be working with you on answering your question today, and I am looking forward to finding the answers for you! Please note that I am working from my computer, and responding as quickly as I can to the questions you ask. If I don’t hear back from you for a little bit, I may not be online when you respond! Rest assured I will not abandon you, and I will do everything I can to answer your question. I am working from home, so will get interrupted from time to time, but I will get back to you as soon as I possibly can.

I understand that JustAnswer automatically generates an offer to have you call me for an additional fee; if you wish to do so, let’s talk about it before you do, as there is sometimes no additional value in calling, but substantial additional fees!

I understand this is a difficult time, and I'm sorry for what's going on. I hope I can assist some today.

Have you contacted Ontario Legal Aid yet to determine if you would qualify for assistance? They will quickly make a determination based on your income. Their number is 1‑800‑668‑8258.

Can I help further today?
