I think it's weird you have changed your story in a few short minutes. You just agreed that the abuse was not so bad that the children did not need to be kept from their father. But you kept them from their father anyhow. I'm seeing that rat again...

And the children were never interviewed by CAS? That is really bizarre.

CAS is mandated to protect your children. They didn't need to intervene because they had no concerns.

Is the therapist a court-appointed counsellor? Is the therapist a registered clinical child psychologist? I have a feeling the 'therapist' will not see the video.

First things first - take your cues!!!! CAS did not intervene as they had no concerns. You kept the kids anyhow. It was not appropriate for you to keep kids. Period.

And now you want the judge to see a video you really don't know what it contains? Any lawyer will tell you - don't ask a question you don't know answer to. I would assume you don't want to show a judge a video you really have no idea what is in it.

I see old Tayken in on line. Perhaps he can share his opinion/advice on the situation as he knows plenty about what constitutes "emergency" motion and can likely answer your procedural question about introducing the video tapes at your trial - or not (as I suspect) and why.

From what you've said, I draw two conclusions:

1. There is no abuse going on.
2. The kids are being manipulated by adults. They have been persuaded to either talk about abuse which didn't happen, or to say that they never talked about any abuse, or both.

#1 means that there is no emergency. #2 has to stop, for the good of the children. This means no more drama about getting hold of a video which may or may not exist, no bringing in third parties to interrogate the kids about what they did or did not say, no making this into a bigger deal than it already is. Pretend you never heard of the existence of this alleged video, and continue with normal life, including sending the kids to their father for his access. Yes, you are going to wonder what is going on, but there is no sign that the kids are in danger which warrants your involvement. If this alleged video ever surfaces, deal with the issue at that time. "Move it along, folks, nothing to see here".
