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 provide me with the basic facts including the ages of the children, how long the arrangement has been in place etc.
I am saddened to hear this.
Are you saying there is a written agreement that was signed after the mediation?
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.
And does the judgment state custody is 50/50?
But what I am asking is if this is in the judgment itself.
Then if you cannot agree on what happens you will need to apply to the court to vary the judgment.
The grounds for being able to apply are that there is a material change of circumstances. Time has passed, the kids are older, the mother has developed serious mental health issues and the children are doing poorly in the current arrangement.
You will have to prove to the court that sole custody where the children live mainly with you is in their best interests.Do you see what I mean?
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.
You are very welcome.
