Yes, and the varied order is supposed to be issued within a day or two.

Read the order over carefully. Who is preparing it?

I'm glad you have something in writing.

Getting things in writing has never been a problem. It's more about whether the ex complies.

A small update. It appears that the exchange centre has changed their hours, so Sunday day long access is not available (which is what the order specifies). So now I have to go back to court to have the order amended for Saturdays instead.

In addition the earliest appointment for intake is Jan 2016. The agent stated that it can take several weeks after the intake appointment before exchanges occur. That means I will won't see the kids until February of 2016.

I'm trying to find an alternative to using the Child and Parent Place. If anyone has any suggestions I'd be happy to hear it. I'm going to spend tomorrow calling around to churches in the area to see if they have any similar services. I don't have family locally, so that is not an option.

I've often heard of people using the local police station as a place for exchanges.

I hadn't even considered that. I'll look into it. Thank you!

I've heard many people actually prefer exchanges here. Open 24/7 and lots of witnesses.

I'm just not sure how that will work since she has a no-contact bail condition. I'll have to call around and see what they say. Hopefully by the time access is actually restored the kids will still recognize me.

Edit: I just got off the phone with the regional police, and they confirmed that they do not offer anything like you mentioned. He recommended asking the crown to adjust the variation based on her behaviour, but I've already tried that with no luck (see my other thread).

Perhaps you can exchange in the parking lot of the police station. I bet they have lots of cameras there.

Another alternative is to exchange in a Tim Hortons. Also open 24/7 with lots of witnesses around.

sorry I should have expanded my response to say that many people opt to exchange at the police station but that the police stations do not have a formalized exchange program. I agree with Knave that the parking lot is a good place and I suspect that this is where many people physically do the exchanges. How old are your children? Are they old enough to go from one vehicle to another on their own? Hotels have lobbys and perhaps you could find a place as well but just do not expect baby-sitting services.

Good luck.
