How do I go about obtaining a child custody order?

how do I go about obtaining a child custody order?

Hello, thank you for the question. What province are you in?

Without identifying yourself, can you tell me a little about the situation? Are you a parent? Were you and the other parent together? If so, when did you separate?

How old is the child? What are the child's living arrangements between the parents like now?

Is there any kind of written or verbal agreement in place at the moment?

Are the child welfare authorities involved?

Is there a specific reason why you need an order at this point?

I'm still here if you want to discuss the custody issue. If you've found your information elsewhere then that's fine. Don't forget about your deposit to the site, you can ask customer service for it to be returned or leave it there for a future question (unless you're on a subscription, of course)
