Thank you for your question.
Before I begin I want to explain a bit about how the site works.
It may be that I will find that I need to gather further information from you. As well, it's quite possible that you may feel the need to ask me additional questions for further clarification.Please do not worry that you will be charged additionally if I ask you questions or if you need to ask me questions. That is not at all how the site works.
As well, please understand that as a careful lawyer I will always give you an honest answer even if the answer is sometimes not what you were hoping for.
Finally, as we go through the process please do not feel rushed if I ask you a question. You are always free to take your time to gather more information before you post back. As well, please understand that even after you rate me the post will not lock and you could always come back for further clarification if you think of something a bit later on down the road.
The father may have to bring an application to the Court for an order allowing him to take the child outside of Canada.
And if he does the Court will order that the mother pay for some of his legal costs.
So a good first step would be for him to send her a letter stating his intention to do so and telling her to speak to a lawyer. The lawyer will likely tell her she has to co-operate or she will get stuck her a lot of legal fees.
But if it comes down to it your husband will have to retain a lawyer in Quebec unfortunately.
If necessary he can contact the Law Society and use their Lawyer Referral Service. He will be given the name of a lawyer and can consult with the lawyer and the first half hour will be $30.
The contact information can be found here:
Let me know if you need any further clarification.
