Default Divorced without consent

I'm desperate for advice. I have a brain Injury with vision related issues so understanding this is extremly difficult.

I don't understand what happend.

My spouse applied for divorce when he had been out of the country for years. He is a citizen.

I filled a counter claim and sent in my financials.

Next I'm divorced!

My lawyer signed without me knowing.

He's signed away my spousal support too.

There are assets

My spouse took our dog and he refuses to give me any information about her.

Please help. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

You need to get a lawyer to review your case. Anonymous strangers on the internet is not where you should turn

It may be that they've approved the divorce while they're still working the rest out. Go to the court and speak to the clerk to find out what's happening, then speak to a free lawyer while you're there.

There are a few disabled members here. Feel free to ask any and all questions!

Word of caution, as this is anonymous, you'll also find members here openly mock the disabled and you may get penalized for complaining. Same for "victums" who clearly come off as the abuser in each post. Take everything with a grain of salt.

Your local family law courthouse will have Duty Counsel during working hours where you can have a consult.

You can also go through the Law Society of Upper Canada and get set up for a free 30 minute consult....although not much 'advice' is given during those consultations.

You may also look into whether you qualify for Legal Aid.

Some employers also provide legal consultation through an Employee Assistance Program.

Some lawyers will also have a 30 minute consult with you...but ultimately this is more of an interview with you in efforts to get you on as a client.
