Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
Please start at the beginning and give me all the facts.
I will also need the age of the child(ren) and what level of court this is.
I will reply back after I finish a meeting that will be starting shortly.
I am sorry but I cannot speak to you on the telephone. I know the site offers this service but the site is based in the US. As I am a lawyer in Canada the rules of my law society prohibit me from speaking to you on the telephone as you are not my client.
I can only speak to you by posting up and back over this site.
Who has been the primary caregiver of the children?
Your adultery has no relevance whatsoever unless is impacts on your parenting.
And your financial situation is also not relevant. If you have custody he will have to pay child support and will likely have to pay spousal support as well.
The court will not care about the reason the marriage ended. It has no relevance.I don't see why you would be the least bit worried about losing custody based on what you have told me.
Is there some other reason that worries you?
Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
This only impacts on your right to custody if your mental health affects your parenting.If you can show through medical evidence that you are now stable and the children are safe with you then your past mental health issues will not likely matter.
It is not a good idea to move out or alter the status quo in any way until you have retained your own family lawyer and received advice.
Collaborative law doesn't always work and if you both want sole custody it may not work.
You may need to litigate and bring in medical evidence.
In your case you will need medical reports.
I have to go offline for a few hours now (it is the Jewish New Year) but I will be back in a few hours.
Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?
