Divorce is an emotionally trying time, and when your ex-spouse is making things more difficult by keeping your children out of reach, it’s incredibly stressful. It’s important that you talk to your Brampton divorce lawyer immediately if your ex won’t let you see your children; there may be a legal remedy that helps keep your relationship with your kids intact.

Talking to Your Ex

Your lawyer might advise you to try the simplest solution first: talking to your ex. The best way to break the ice in a situation like this is to tell your ex that you understand that he or she wants the best for your children, and so do you. Explain that psychologists suggest strong relationships with both parents are best for kids of any age. (It also can’t hurt to point out that your ex could use some free time, during which you’ll take the kids and give him or her the opportunity to run errands, relax, or do something fun.)

Stay calm, and if your ex becomes upset, ask if you can continue the conversation later. Avoiding conflict, especially when you’re talking about the children, is essential.

Coming to an Agreement with Your Ex

It’s important that when you come to an agreement about child custody and access to the kids, you ask your Brampton divorce lawyer to put it on paper.

Vague or unclear wording in the visitation order can compound the problem of one parent denying the other time with the children, so if you feel that what your ex will misinterpret what your lawyer has written, ask to change it. Better still, explain to your lawyer that you want very specific days and times written into your child custody agreement.

Ontario Law is Designed to Protect Your Children

Your Brampton divorce lawyer’s job is to ensure that your rights and your kids’ rights are protected under Ontario law. If your ex is keeping your children from you, it’s important that you let your lawyer know. He or she can work to solve the problem through the court system if your ex doesn’t respond to civil conversations.
