Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: I am a single parent living in Edmonton AB and the father of my child lives in Vancouver BC. I want to have an official guardianship agreement done. I've printed off the Claim - Family Law Act. Affidavit, and Statement - Parenting. Our agreement is going to be that I am the guardian with the father getting visiting time of a month out of the year. He wants to take our son to Vancouver for a month out of the summer. I am worried with his violent history and BPD diagnosis that once he takes him to Vancouver he is going to refuse to bring him back which is why I want the official agreement done. I want to know how to properly fill out the paperwork and how Edmonton vs Vancouver works. Once my claim is put in would he have to come to Edmonton or could he go somewhere in Vancouver, and does my Alberta claim have jurisdiction in BC. If he decides not to bring him back against the agreement how is the agreement enforced?
JA: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any papers in family court?
Customer: I haven't, I have just printed them off and I am waiting to fill them out.
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer about this yet?
Customer: No that's why I am messaging you.
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: No I think thats everything

Please note that the experts don’t text so there may be a bit of a delay. If you don’t answer back for a while I may not be online when you do but I will never desert you and will check back often. As well, as I am working from home it is possible that I will be interrupted but I will always return back as soon as I can.

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

When you talk about forms for court and also about an agreement it leaves me a little bit puzzled. Do you think that the father will sign an agreement?

I don't know why I never heard back from you but at this point in time all I can do is suggest how to find a lawyer to retain.

What you can do to find a lawyer is one of the following things.

You can contact the Lawyer Referral Service. You will be given the name of a lawyer and can consult with the lawyer and the first half hour will be free.

Or you can check on a site called lexpert. This is a legal directory of leading lawyers and law firms throughout Canada and is well-respected by the legal community.

Here's the link to their website:

http://www.lexpert.ca/directory/find-lawyers-or-law-firms/

Does that help as a starting point?
