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 sorry to hear this.
There is nothing you can do in terms of making a statement at this point in time but yes, you most assuredly should be retaining legal representation.
If child protective services believes her they will be calling the police as well.
You should be consulting with a criminal lawyer at the least. Whether you need a family lawyer or not is yet to be seen.
Does that help as a starting point?
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.
I am a family lawyer in Canada. It is called different names depending on the jurisdiction.
I think you should have a brief consultation with a criminal lawyer to be ready in case you are contacted by them or the police.
