I think all of us know how rampant problems at FRO are. Part of what we want to accomplish in this is to prove to the Courts and FRO just what is going on. They are totally in denial that problems do exist.

We have received concerns that "I have already spent so much on lawyers I dont have anything left." ( Part of the problem with FL) We also feel that there are many that are just reluctant to speakout out of fear. All very valid concerns in my opinion.

We still want to hear your experiences even if you do not wish to actively participate in the suit.
Hope to hear from you. email livinganightmare@live.ca

We don't go through the FRO (payments made directly to ex) but it is still a nightmare.

Default Congratulations on your suit

Good luck....may it grow into a groundswell of suppor that will eventually change family law to reflect that which is right and give those who have been the victims of its insanity the voice needed to create laws that reflect common sense.....

I would like to take a moment to clarify a little as to what is going on at present.
What our lawyer has asked is that we try to gather as many "stories/complaints as we can" These will be put into 2 catagories for now. One as a file of complaints and 2 as active files that he will follow through on. He can open a persons file and take action on thier behalf and if he feels there would be punitive damages he is willing to present your case along side ours in the joint suit. We realise that not everyone has the resources at the moment to hire a lawyer. But you dont have to. With discussion between you and he you can determine what you need done if you want anything done. At this point if someone does wish to have him investigate or reccommend action he is asking a fee and consent. That has to be in order for him to open any file. But the bottom line is we need as many complaints as we can recieve not all need to be opened. So please take a moment to think if you may be willing to at least tell your ordeal to our lawyer.

It is clear hands down that none of us likes FRO very much and it still remains such a mystery to me why Canadians dont speak out. Honestly together we do have the power to change circumstance. Strenghth in numbers is so true.

Yes we have a lawer that will be representing all of our complaints. He is willing to address those who need intervention immediately and there are some that may not. But the point is for you to be heard. That initial step is at no cost to anyone. I think we have become to complacent many a time as a Nation.

Our main goals is to have change brought about to FRO in there reckless abandon in managing cases. The way they carry on is adding fuel to an already highly combative situation. Plus they do not realise nor care about the power they have to destroy lives. Their stance and was said right on TV "Oh well we make mistakes" None of us would be allowed to get away with that. I wish I could post the interview. As well by not speaking out it gives the impression that the problem does not exist.

So please tell us of your experiences. We do care and want to hear from you.

I have gone back to take a look at my thread today. I just wanted to take a moment to clarify a point or two. One person asked "who said it cant be done?" We have spent so many months talking with FRO, the Ombudsman, The Prime Minister, Ontario premier and many others. You would not beleive the state of denial that we have run into. Right from the begining of this ordeal 8 years ago, FRO's arrogant attitude is no one can sue us.Well many have brought an won small cases against FRO, so it is happening. The problem is is that so they one but nothing has been done post victory to FRO to help them clean up thier mistakes so they feel they dont have to. Thier belief is that they are above the law. Right down from the Prime Minister to our local MP are too scared to get involved. They just say we cant get involved, its not our responsibility. Well I beg to differ We were told by the Justice dept and attorney gereral that the upper persons Directors etc are hired/appointed under standard HR practices. There for there is a level of accountability that goes both ways in the employer/employee relationship. Most bosses I know would can someone for the types of mistakes that are being made at FRO. We have all also heard of the accountability act that our Goverment has created. It makes them accountable for thier actions this is why we have so many inquires into this and that ageny of late. No one thus far is willing to stand up to FRO.
It is a shame that we as an individual has to go to this extreme but it is more than time that it does happen. Our intent is not to destroy FRO but to get them straightened out to run better for everyones sake.
