Customer Question
I live in Saskatchewan...

I live in Saskatchewan Canada and I have been separated for over 3 years now. I moved out for the second time because of emotional and mental abuse, I just couldn't take it anymore. We have two children son (8) and a daughter (5), and their primary residence is with their mother and because of the mothers work schedule we have agreed that i will have the children with me when she is working her permanent nightshirt schedule. My question is this, do I have the right to schedule counseling for my son and I to help him with his emotional health and processing his emotions about our separation without her consent? The other day I made an appointment with Sign In Yorkton SK, and the counselor told me my estranged wife stormed into her office and demanded that she cancel the appointment I had set up for my son and myself. Does she have the right to cancel or intervene in my efforts to help my children's mental health when they are in my care?
