Default Trial Decision!

Hey All...

Finally over and the order came relatively quick. I received sole custody and primary residency of my daughters after this long 7 year battle. At times I felt like this was impossible. CAS at times enabled her. I received so much pushback from so many trying to advocate for my kids. Keep up the good fight Dad's and Mom's.

Going to Jail is an unknown quantity at this point

7 years to resolve is totally insane.
The FRO, Family lawyers and provincial courts give no urgent regard for justice.

Let's not forget Legal Aid. They played a huge part in this madness as well!

Hey Arabian! Thanks so much 12 and 9. They are so happy with this - I was worried but they are relieved. Our judge was so very fair and put many boundaries and protective measures in place for us.

I self rep'd part of the way and then utilized a lawyer for the last half of the journey. I found my lawyer on justicenet and was able to get a reduced rate. He was phenomenal. Very fair and amazing.

Congratulations on actually getting to trial. How many times were you bypassed to be put on the trial list? (7 x and counting for me so far) . What made the judge finally consent to allow you to go to trial?

I was only bypassed once. The judge consented due to my X being beligerant, changing lawyers multiple times, constantly changing stories & not following through on many of the orders (medical/psych/etc) that were critical to the case. Why is it 7X for you? That is insanity!

Yes it is insanity. We have been at this for 6 1/2 years now. He has not complied with disclosure or completing the psychological assessment. Given more and more time to do so. His lawyer is a master at the stalling game. My lawyer predicted a five day trial, his lawyer 30 days. Shocked the pants off the judge who has refused to put us on the trial list the last 4 x because CAS cases take priority and there is no time for us. The message is clear from the court that our children have no value as human beings. Guess the judge is waiting to see if one of our children is pushed to committing suicide so as to reduce trial time
