Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** will be working on your question today and I am looking forward to our conversation.
Customer
Hi

Legal Ease, Expert

I know your question is important to you and I will be giving it the time and attention it deserves.

Sometimes responses and replies take time, so I ask you to be courteous and patient to allow me the time to type answers to you and also to others. At times I may even have to do some research.

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

Even though the situation is messy could you take a few minutes and explain a bit about what is going on please?


Customer
Thankyou
Customer
I have been separated from the father of my daughter for 8+ years now. In December, he phoned and left a distasteful voice-mail on my phone, threatening to come into my home where I reside with all 3 of my children and husband of 6 years, and take my daughter, among other things. My daughter has told me the manipulative nature that her father's girlfriend continues to display in my daughter's life. I need that type of destruction out of my daughter's life. She is only 10.

Well did he come to the house and do that?

Customer
He did not, he threatened to. Now he has his girlfriend who has been playing mind games on my daughter working with him making up lies to try and take ME to court instead. I've already Informed the cops about the voicemail he left me and they were going to press charges. Within a week the cop changed her mind without even listening to the voicemails.
img

Legal Ease, Expert

That is horrible. Has he made another threat again?

Customer
They have both threatened me with court and laid accusations against me that aren't true
Customer
Because his girlfriend had hurt my daughter physically, she is trying to bury me with lies about anything and everything. Things I've never heard of until she emailed me saying so.
img

Legal Ease, Expert

Did you report the assault to the police?

Customer
I did. But because my daughter told me about it way after it happened, they told me they couldn't pursue it. My daughter even told the rcmp dec 15th when we gave a statement that my ex threatened to come into my house, and the cop said she would look into it and then closed it all and said she didn't have enough to pursue charges
Customer
I want a new court order that withdrawals his gfs right or ability to be around my daughter especially due to her manipulative and aggressively micromanaging false accusation filled form of a garbage life she imposes on MY daughter.
img

Legal Ease, Expert

Does your daughter want to go there?

Customer
she wants to see her dad. And even after her telling me what his gf has said about me behind my back, as soon as 'Missy' talks nice on the phone to her she falls into it. When do I stop fighting
img

Legal Ease, Expert

So what would you like to see happening ideally?

Customer
0 contact with haileys father. Pick and drop offs to be through 3rd party. No contact with his gf allowed to my daughter so ensure mental abusive isn't present
img

Legal Ease, Expert

Does the gf live with the father?

Customer
They break up move into different places then get back together. Its happened about 3 times in a yr already, I think he just moved from his own place back in with her yes.
img

Legal Ease, Expert

So how would your daughter be able to see him in his home and stay over etc. if the girlfriend is living there without seeing the girlfriend? What would you be able to propose?

Customer
I dont know what to do at this point.
img

Legal Ease, Expert

Do you have a separation agreement?

Customer
we did go to court in February 2015
img

Legal Ease, Expert

What level of a court was that? So was it provincial court or Supreme Court?

Customer
Provincial
Customer
Then I filed for maintenance year 2021 and thats when his tenper went through the roof again
Customer
I went about 5 years with next to nothing for financial aid to raise our daughter. I've only ever with held her from him when it came to her safety
Customer
Or if she told me she didn't want to go.
img

Legal Ease, Expert

But now she wants to go right? Does she want to sleep there overnight?

Customer
Hi
Customer
They promised to do a bunch of things with her. She just got out of isolation ion as of today since we all had covid in our house gifted from a vaccinated family member

Legal Ease, Expert

Here is the answer to your query. Please do not hesitate to ask any follow up questions related to this response and know that I will respond as soon as I can.

You are really stuck in a bind because whether your daughter is safe or not, whether you approve of how the  despicable girlfriend acts or not, your daughter wants to go to see her father and wants to sleep over. If that were not the case your case would be much stronger to stop this.

You can't compel the father not to live with the girlfriend or to have the girlfriend out of her home when your daughter is sleeping over. So all I can think of you doing is either retain a lawyer and having the lawyer send a letter setting out your concerns and essentially threatening court or else  go to court and seek an order that he cease and desist from harassing you and threatening you and that all communications be restricted to be just between the father and you only and not with the girlfriend and that the girlfriend is restricted from harming your daughter or threatening you etc.

Does that make sense?


Customer
it does
Customer
What lawyer could I possibly afford to help me battle in court that if ANY foul speech is spoken of myself or my husband between her father and his gf in front of my daughter that she will be prohibited any and all visitation in their household
img

Legal Ease, Expert

I'm not so sure you could get that order unfortunately. You would have to prove that it would be in your daughter's best interest not to see her father if he says bad things about you or your spouse.

Lawyers are expensive so you could either just pay the lawyer to send a letter or you could self represent.

Is there anything more I can help you with before I mark this question as complete?

Customer
I dont have a question at this minute but I'm sure within a day I'll remember what else I had to ask

Customer
I've recently been sent numerous screenshots of what her father's gf has been saying on social media. She has called me names, accused me of untrue things, spilled out so much slander to effect my work as well.

Legal Ease, Expert

Customer
Where do I put said post
img

Legal Ease, Expert

I'm not sure exactly how it works but I believe you use the phone app or else a computer.

Customer
I dont really know how to do that, this convo thread has been through txt messaging on my android phone. We don't have a computer either.
Customer
I'm sure I can Google the law of defamation, no?
img

Legal Ease, Expert
