I suggest that you immediately consult with two different lawyers at this point in time.
First I suggest you consult with a criminal lawyer.
As these are very serious allegations there is a very strong possibility that that the police and child protective services will get involved.
Your spouse or child may repeat this to just one person and that will be enough.
Second I suggest you consult with a family lawyer.
These allegations are enough to cause your contact to the children to be limited to supervised access.
As well, if your marriage does end there are going to be issues relating to custody/access, child support, spousal support and division of assets.
You can contact the Law Society and use their Lawyer Referral Service. You will be given the name of a lawyer and can consult with the lawyer and the first half hour will be free.
Let me find you the phone number to call.
You should call first thing Tuesday morning.
The number is: 1-800-268-8326 or(NNN) NNN-NNNN(within the GTA)
Is there risk in meeting with a marriage councilor tuesday? or a specialist we can deal with in confidence?
