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 saddened to hear of this terrible story.
I would be shocked if anyone anywhere thought you should send your children back into the home.
The oldest was assaulted, plain and simple.
The youngest is being spanked which is generally considered abuse and certainly abusive if the person is not a parent.
So I suggest that you bring an emergency application for interim sole custody on the basis that the current situation is leaving the children in a home with physical violence where they are being assaulted.
And if you can get a legal aid lawyer to assist you then have the lawyer act. If you cannot then get all the help you can get and self-represent.
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?
