I had a contract and it ended, though we're not done with the job. can I extend it?
Contracts don't end by themselves. What happened? Someone must have closed it, the client, the freelncer, or Upwork because it had been ide with funds in Escrow for 3 months.
It isn't actually possible to bring a closed contract back to life, the client needs to rehire the freelancer.
I checked and your freelancer should be able to issue the refund for the contract that was prematurely closed. Unfortunately, you will not be able to extend it, but both you and your freelancers can propose a new contract. You can hire him again by going to your My Freelancers page (Freelancers > My Freelancers > Freelancers name) and hire him from that page.
