What if they make me sign a paperwork stating that I need to pay for it. Because they threatened me to sign it and I was mentally weak as well because all stress were going through me and somehow I signed it. There were no witness no one. Now I don’t know which lawyer should I need to go for the help.

Is there any specific lawyer I can get help from because if they file a case in Nepal then I cannot win because in Nepal people work under power and I don’t have anyone like that.

If you signed then you may be legally held as liable though you could plead duress if they forced you to do this. If you are not in Nepal then it does not matter what they do in Nepal they cannot enforce it outside Nepal. I trust this assists
