Thoughts?
I believe this is a question and not a tip.
Please post the question in a thread, after which I will respond to it.
When you ask you question please provide more information.
Such as under what section is the OCL involved?
Is it section 112 (social worker)
or is it section 89 (lawyer).

Thanks

Just had an in-home observation and the first meeting of the social work assist with my kids with their Children's Lawyer present and what a joke. 45 mins of all of us playing board games, the Children's Lawyer didn't even want to be there. And this is going to help determine access and custody?!

Thats a great way to spend an observation visit.
But this isn't a tip, should be in a new thread.

I had the OCL lawyer at my place .... went ok I think. What he thinks about 50/50 I dont know, but he knows (I think ) I am a good father

He asked me actually to please fire him from the job, he would rather have us get to a solution

There is no social worker involved, I do not know what that means.

How much weight will the report from him have? He asked me about what I was accused of, and said that this was nothing in comparison what other stories he heard....

If lawyer is involved, then their won't be a report.
He will simply tell the court the preferences of the children.

How old are they.

Have you read this thread in it's entirety???

If so you would know that the lawyer can only report on the preferences of the child, and not the BIOC.

i tried to read it all, but there is so much to digest..... so, how much saying will the boys have? will they simply be asked "how many percent do you want?"
