JA: Was a protective order issued? What were the basic terms?
Customer: The children were never apprehended I placed them with my parents while I was looking for a new residence and the Children's Aid Society filed for cord with an address that I no longer lived at and they got a temporary order but I believe it was over after 12 months they refile for another temporary order but the judge did not approve of it and I want to know what are my legal rights at this time

Legal Ease, Expert

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.

What province are you in please?

There was a court order in april 25 of 2019 because i lost my home and i placed children on my own desion with my mom. The society got a call from a neighbour makig false allegations qbout drug use. The same neighbour made false complaints to tge fas company my landlord and animal control. I have proof thease were ll vindictive. The society filed for supervision order buf there was no apprehension because i had already placed the kids in a safe place approved by sicuety. My lawyer convinced me to sign a 5 mi tb agreenent because i was consudered honeless. I had beleuved this aas an out of court agreement but then my bf was at court and i had not attended becayse i was not served and there was a temperary order and the vourt and society cinvinced my bf to sign abd a temp order aas made. On our next court date it was continued becsuse my home wasnt ready. I have now purchased a property but it was in need of remos yo be safe. I have completed a majority of what is needed. It is safe for the children. The oreder was contined past 12 mo thes because if covid. The order has expireded anx the society had requested a new order but the judge did not mention anything in yge endorsment. Can i take them back now.

What does the endorsement say?

Customer
It says there was a 5 month volenrary temp supervision order on sept 20 2019. Nothing since then in the endorsments says anytjjng on supervision otherthen we are still fighting for a final order. The origibal agreenent lasted lknger tgen expecteddue to covid
Customer

Legal Ease, Expert

So do you mean there has not been another endorsement since then and for over one year your kids are still with your parents and the CAS is still involved?

Customer
cas is asking us to sign custody and they were never apprehended
Customer
They have in the past taken my son for 6 monthes saying i had no choice until i stole him back because i had rights to. Then they lied in their affidavit saying i agreed to a kinship. They lied. I brought the evidence to the justice of the peace and sge agreed i gad enough evidence to have the worker charged with purgury
Customer
i went ahead with having her charged
Customer
They are trying to get even with me i beleive.

If you just take the children back then they will apprehend them so you need to get an order allowing you to have the children back.

For this reason your best next step would be to retain an experienced a family lawyer experienced child protection proceedings. If you cannot afford one you should check to see if you were eligible for legal aid.

Customer
But there is no reaskb for them. To apprehend. So is it not worth a shot. Worsf case ill be exactly where i am. The conxern was i lost mh home. I have never abused my children nor was there a claim i have. I have years of ckean drug tests from my dr. My mentel healrh is no concern i have no crimmjnal record. So what can they say. I feel i am neglecting them by not taking them back. If there is no coyrt order i have that right.right? Because of the time frame us it not risky to leave them thrre at my moms. I can not afford a lawyer at this time. U am liw income but do not qualify

I don't know if it's worth a shot because you may be taking a huge risk here. It may make more sense to ask for their consent but if you want take a chance then that is your decision but no lawyer would recommend that though.

Customer
Can i file a motion requesting temperary access while theres an on going matter or do j file it under the current matter. Because i dont want to wait til feburary.

You can try but with Covid it's not likely that you'll be able to get a hearing when you already have one scheduled for February.

Customer
Ok. Well thank you very much for your time. I appreciate your advice
Customer
Can you recommend another way to obtain counsel without legal aid if I am low income
Customer
Or can you recommend a good family lawyer in the Hamilton Ontario area that will take payment to guide me through the process or just to look over my material before I file it

You can contact the Law Society and use their 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.

Here is a link to the site:

Can also see if you can get some help from the family law information centre at the courthouse.

Customer
