he pick this paper up on April28 2015 . He was told to pick up bills for the the repairs for the truck but it turn out to be this paper for small claims court. He was tricked he was thinking it was the bill for repairs. I don,t see where its said 20 days
Expert:  Debra replied 2 years ago.
I think this is a claim but I am not sure because I cannot read it. If it is a claim then somewhere on there it provides a deadline for your husband to put in a statement of defence. He must do this. If he does not then the Court will give the person suing what he is asking for.I know this is hard for you to understand and it is for most people so don't feel badly about that. You have a few options in terms of getting a bit of help. First you can try and make an appointment at your local legal aid clinic and get a bit of help in terms of someone telling you what this is about and what you have to do. Or, you can contact the Law Society and use their Lawyer Referral Service. You will be given the name of a lawyer and can consult with the lawyer and the first half hour will be free.The number is:1-***-***-**** or ***-***-**** (within the GTA) I am not saying to hire the lawyer to help with the lawsuit but to see the lawyer for the free half an hour and find out what is going on. Then once you understand more you can always post on this site again and I can assist you further.
