Debra, Expert

Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** will be working on your question today and I am looking forward to our conversation.

Debra, Expert

Please note that I am working from my computer and not actually texting. If you don’t answer back for a while I may not be online when you do but I will never desert you and will check back often. As well, as I am working from home it is possible that I will be interrupted but I will always return back as soon as I can.

Finally, although the site offers a call option I personally do not take calls but just work online. Some find this confusing as it looks like the offer is coming from me but that is just how the site presents the offer and it really isn’t coming from me. Some of the other experts do take calls and so you are very welcome to request a call on this post and an expert may take it. They will have the benefit of reading our exchange which should work out very well for everyone involved!

I know your question is important to you and I will be giving it the time and attention it deserves.

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

Unfortunately, there are no lawyers from Quebec on this site.

As you likely know the law in Quebec is very different than it is in the rest of the country. For this reason you should be consulting with a lawyer from Quebec off the site.

What you can do to find a lawyer is one of the following things.

You can review the law society's suggestions on how to find a lawyer. Depending on where you live you may be able to consult with a lawyer for $25 for the first half hour:

https://www.barreau.qc.ca/en/find-lawyer/

Or you can check on a site called lexpert. This is a legal directory of leading lawyers and law firms throughout Canada and is well-respected by the legal community.

Here's the link to their website:

http://www.lexpert.ca/directory/find-lawyers-or-law-firms/

Does that help as a starting point?

I have found it and asked the site to move this to the Canada law list. Right now it is on the US law list.

I don't know if they will do it tonight unfortunatey.
