Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
I am a lawyer in Canada.
I am sorry to hear this but he was in breach without a doubt. He was not permitted to text you. I understand why he called the police but he cannot sue his fear that you were going to commit suicide as a reason to text you especially since it sounds like he found out about that concern after texting you.
Do you see what I mean?I know you wanted to be able to text him but you enabled or caused him to breach. That is not how our legal system works and now he is in further difficulty.
I suggest you don't consider enabling this further or he is going to end up in jail.
Please don't shoot the messenger. I am a senior lawyer and the only way I can see helping you and your spouse is to be completely clear so not further harm is caused.
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.
There is always a chance but not a great one. The main point in his favour is the Crown had agreed to lift the order in court on Tuesday.
It likely means he will be jailed. But again that is not definite but it is unfortunately very possible.
Then that's great and then if the Crown still agrees on Tuesday it will work out.
You should not do anything more.
The matter is going to be considered on Tuesday and for now you should simply make sure you don't allow a further breach and just sit still and wait.
You are very welcome.
If we are done please be sure to rate me before you leave the site so that I can receive credit for my work.
Thanks and I sincerely ***** ***** work out for you.
