I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Good day your question has been forwarded to me to see if I may be able to help.

Expert:  ReadyLaw replied 6 days ago.

Thank you for your patience. I do understand how you feel and your desire to care for your wife. However, unfortunately without the assessment being done it is likely that she would not be released. The purpose of the assessment is to determine whether you are capable of caring for her. I would therefore encourage you to participate fully with the assessment process.

Hope this helps. All the best. RL
