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.
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.
May I go ahead?
You won't be able to sue the CAS for interviewing your child without telling you. In fact that is generally what they do in most cases as they want the child to feel safe to express themselves. So you don't have the legal right to be with your child during the interview and you don't have the legal right to know it is going to happen.In cases of abuse telling the parent could put the child in danger so even though that was not the case for you they don't know what is going on before they see the child.
The same holds true for the school. In fact the school is prohibited from telling you about the interview ahead of time or including you unless the CAS wants to include you.So these allegations should not be raised again as they will make you seem as if you want to blame them for what is going on.
A better approach is to show that you are fully co-operating but that your child is not in need of protection.
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.
Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?
