As part of a settlement following a 'Towards Healing Process' in Victori, I was forced to sign a deed of release in order to obtain the compensation. During the negotiation process, I stated many times that I was not willing to sign such a deed. I was informed, after divulging all my personal information including how close I was to financial incapacity (bankruptcy), that the only way the Diocese would pay was if I signed such a deed. I was also informed that I this would make no difference to my ability to revisit the process if the limitation laws changed. Last year I found out that the statute of limitations had changed in Victoria and approached the Diocese seeking some help. This was refused and I was basically told to go away as I was breaching the deed that I signed. Do I have an ability to challenge such a deed? If so what firm would be best to speak with? The refusal of assistance compounded along with other factors and caused me to lose my house due to an inability to pay my mortgage. The settlement that I originally agreed to was predicated on the fact that the statute effectively barred me from suing for damages in court. Do I have any options to revisit?
