Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
I'm sorry to hear of this difficult situation.There is no doubt that the cats belonged to Don. They were never Ron's. Don gave them to you. They are now your cats.You can sue Ron in small claims court and can self represent. I know you said you don't want to do that you will not succeed in getting the cats back if you do not.It may be that you can first have a lawyer send a demand letter to Ron and maybe Ron will get scared and give the cats back.But either you or lawyer must send Ron a letter giving him a deadline for giving you back the cats. In the letter tell him that if he fails to comply you will commence legal proceedings and then will be seeking your costs.
You can then proceed to sue him in small claims court and you can self represent. If it gets that far and you find you need some help as you go through the process you can always post on the site again and I can assist you further.Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
As I have already said, the cats are yours and so your chances are very high that you will succeed in court.
You would self-represent so it would just cost $50 for the filing fee at court and if you win he will have to pay you back for that.
It will take several months to get a trial.
Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?
