Customer Question
I have 50/50 custody...

I have 50/50 custody of my kids, well last night my one son decided he wants to live with me as he is scared of his father and unhappy there. What can I do? I phone the police and they said I could legally take him last night so I did.

Lawyer's Assistant: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?

I’m in Alberta Canada

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

What do you mean? There was no physical violence so police said I can take him if he wanted to go.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Just want to know if it’s legal for him to live with me as we have 50/50 shared custody

I am sorry to hear this.

How old is the child?

What does the father say about this?

Is there an order or agreement with respect to custody?

Did you get a chance to read my questions to you? I cannot answer you in a meaningful way until I gather the appropriate information. There is no charge for us going up and back of course.

Thanks!
