Debra, Expert

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.

img

Debra, Expert

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

What legal information are you looking for from me specifically please?

Customer
My daughter wants me to consent to Ontario Works that I allow her to get fostered by the lady with whom she is staying currently so that she gets the assistance from the government.
My question is how could it impact the custody and what could be the financial consequences on me.
img

Debra, Expert

This doesn't really make any sense. If you want your daughter living with you then you should not sign because why would the government be supporting her when you should be. My concern is Ontario works is going to come out to you to reimburse them.

As well, if you were getting child-support from her other parent that will stop.

Does that clarify the law?

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.

Customer
Exactly, she left home with he own will and is keen and pressuring me to consent for fostering.
I did mention to her that she should comeback home.
Im a single mom and I receive the CTB.
Her father does not live in Canada and has been not in contact for last 13 years.So I am the sole custodian.
She has been on addictive drugs and is receiving treatment from CAMH currently and so my concern again is I don’t want her to live anywhere else other than my home but as per the social workers and the cops they cant force her to comeback against her will.
What am I supposed to do?

Debra, Expert

Well, if it were me I would say this is your home and you're always welcome but I will not support you outside of the home nor will I support your efforts to move out of the home and I will not sign any documentation that assists you in living out of the home.

You will lose the CTB.

Customer
This is exactly what I told her in our conversation an hour ago.My words were my doors are always open to you and I never asked you to leave but I wont sign up for anything in this matter as this is highly complicated legal issue and no sane parent would give away the custody.
I informed her that I have transferred the money to the lady in order to not burden anyone.FYI The lady had requested the social worker for financial assistance.
I would keep you posted with further conversation and would be needing you .
How can I rate you ?

Debra, Expert

The next time you post you can just say "This is for Debra" at the beginning of your question.

Thanks

Customer
This is for Debra- A quick question - if a 15 year old is wilfully demanding to handover the custody to another adult . What will be the financial impact on me?Do I still have to pay for the expenses?
img

Debra, Expert

No you don't.

She is withdrawing from your control and leaving against your wishes do you don't have to support her.

I am sorry this is still going on.

Customer
Thanks
Customer
But is this as per the Ontario law and how is the best way to arrange paperwork in order to have a legal evidence
img

Debra, Expert

Yes I a retired lawyer in Toronto.

There is no legal paperwork but you can provide her or the adult she is living with a letter stating you want her home, she is out of the home completely against your wishes and for this reason so long as she remains living out the home you will not provide her with any financial support.

Full support will resume the moment she comes home and most sincerely ***** ***** comes home now or soon.

Customer
This is for Debra. Actually children's aid society is involved too. They are aware of all the incident.And the adult with whom she is living has agreed to have her but on the other hand has asked for financial assistance. Children's Aid Society asked me to give her the CTB if possible so I do transfer every 2 weeks $100 in order not to burden them.
