It is after months of savings and years of aspiration that you finally decide to purchase your dream house. And if you are living in a country like the USA, taking a house loan is unavoidable if you belong to the mid-income group. This again entails a thousand odd processes and acute planning down to the finest detail. In the entire procedure, buying the house at the earliest remains your top priority. Many a times it so happens that you sign the loan papers hastily without delving much into it. It is during this time that unscrupulous lenders take advantage of your haste and trust and mislead you. And if it is related to matters of mortgage, things become even more tricky and complicated.
A paralegal is a person who helps lawyers in their work. They are non-lawyer people, i.e. they are not licensed to practice in a court of law. But this only holds true in the United States and a couple of other countries. In Canada, paralegals have an independent status according to the law. They are not the same in every country. In the United States they are not allowed to offer legal service to the public in any way as they are not officers of the court and are not licensed to do so. It is the opposite in Canada. Paralegals in Canada are allowed to provide legal services to the public and appear before certain lower courts and legal tribunals.
Reports suggest that a large proportion of cases being heard in Canadian courts examine charges against accused criminals under 18 years old.
