Customer Question
Hi Pearl. I...

Hi Pearl. I have a question about custody.

Lawyer's Assistant: Family law varies by state. What state are you in?

Whoops, this is USA... I'm in Canada. Hmmm (thanks google) :0 I'll try and find a canadian equivelant

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

Yes one. But they said finding one in your resident province is the first thing to do I'm just looking for answers while I wait for some calls back

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

This is regarding the technicalities of abduction

My wife and I and our children reside in North Vancouver, BC. My wife and children left on a vacation to visit family and attended a wedding in Alberta. I left soon after on a work trip to China. We agreed they would return to start the school year.
When I returned from my trip, I found my wife had enrolled our children in a school in Alberta, lied about where she was staying, and refused to talk to me. She also limiting my access to the children and even called the police when I initially came to pick everyone up to go home. We have no history of any violence or abuse.
I've spoken to a couple Alberta lawyers, but my specific question is this.
Am I legally allowed to take our children back to their province of residence without undue legal recourse?
They start their new school in a few days and I don't want to allow an establishment of 'normal pattern' for them to be in Alberta.

This just happened 2 days ago and I have no intentions of separating, or seeking legal action.
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 10 months ago
But is your spouse not saying you are separated?

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!
