I have grown up in the Alberta Child Welfare system

Customer Question
(Government services) and they really...
I have grown up in the Alberta Child Welfare system (Government services) and they really screwed around with my life. to the degree where I was led to believe and even temporarily had mental health issues and it goes on. after 18 I said I didn't want any help from them because of their lack of help as a child and growing up. I got on adult social assistance for about a year and then I went to ask them for more help. which they did. my first intention was to get a lawyer but I didn't have a mind for this kind of thing, due to past life. I didn't know how to. I ended up having two cheques coming in daily from two different governments. I should have had an education and a life and a job where I didn't have to do any of this if it wasn't for the child system. I owe the government money (36.000) that should be rightfully mine. life isn't easy I know and understand that but I want to take them to court please and I want to get money from them. I am now fighting physical problems due to all of this chaos and have no way to get my financial needs met. please help me get a lawyer! will this be a good case?

I am sorry to hear all of this.

Why do you owe the government $36,000 (in their view)?
