When you say you've received the order do you mean you it your daughter ?
So when your daughter just moved out of the home, she took a children with her right?
And if so, the father has a protested about that?
Is a father a permanent resident?
Is just horrible. I'm so sorry to hear this.
One thing more you should do about the children right now is you should contact Canada border services and tell them that they need to be on the lookout in case there is a potential parental abduction. Also, if your daughter has the passports cshe should hide them.
This sounds like a dangerous situation and I suggest that your daughter speak to her lawyer about getting an interim order for sole custody where access is restricted and perhaps it should be supervised access and this order should be made police and enforcible. That way she can deny him the chikfreb and can call the police if necessary and if he has the children she can call the police if he appears not to be returning them on time if he does have access.
He is a terrible bully but he doesn't make up the law and your daughter and you should both realize that he is not going to do very well in court. In fact, all of these incidents are going to harm his chances of getting joint custody he and he is quickly going to learn that he isn't able to call the shots anymore.
How long exactly did they live together for?
As you likely know common law spouses have the same legal rights that's legally married spouses have when it comes to support and property division.
Generally, the courts consider common law relationships and marriages to be equal partnerships. This means the court does not usually look at contributions to assets. However, it is possible for a court to decide not to divide assets up equally when doing so would be unfair and cause one person to be on justly enriched to the detriment of the other. So it may not be that the court will order that he gets half of the house.
But, your daughter's lawyer has a much better idea of what is going on in terms of the details and she should really listen to the lawyer in terms of advice. I am only providing general legal information. Do you see what I mean?
