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 no person in the Ministry to speak to. This has nothing to do with any Ministry.
You can try and speak to the Crown and let them know what you think. But neither you nor your boys charged your spouse. The police did because they had reasonable grounds for believing an offence has occurred. And the Crown believes that they will get a conviction.
If you are subpoenaed you have to go to court. There is no choice. You would be arrested and jailed if you do not. That is the last thing your boys need to see happen.
Victim services likely explained this to you as well.
So tell the Crown your position and how you and the boys feel. But honestly, that is all you can do.
Does that help explain the law even though it it now what you were really hoping to hear?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?
