Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: I'm 18 and I haven't seen my siblings in 12 years. My father lost communication with them by losing his court case. I was wondering how I could contact them. They are both over the age of 18. Is there any way that I would be able to find details on them, even tho I live with my father?
JA: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any papers in family court?
Customer: I honestly wouldn't know where to start
JA: Family law varies by state. What state are you in?
Customer: Ontario, Canada
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: That's mostly it for now

Do you have any information about your siblings besides their full names?
Customer
Not at all, we lost all communication

Your father could try communicating to the hospital or provincial agency to see if they have a copy of the birth certificate to use as a starting point. He could also contact any previous agencies like Ministry of Transportation or such and advise them he requires info on his children and give them their last known names and advise they're his children and he's trying to find them.
Failing that though, the next option would perhaps be to hire a private investigator who may be able to assist in tracking them down, even with the little information you have.
Does that answer your question?
