    The office of the children's lawyer refuses to get involved. We asked for them in the spring and did all the intake forms and they rejected the case. My guess is that the whole case is so ridiculous that they don't think it's worth it.
    I'd be nice if they did though! Ugh.

    I seriously cant say enough good things about the OCL. Quite possibly they see that mom is just BS and dont wanna waste their time, but if all this is new they might take the case now.
    ...and in that moment I swear we were infinite.

    I'm sorry Kaisa. The whole thing sounds terrible for you, your family and especially your son--if you 've had him from 2 weeks old he's as much yours as hers. I hope it all works out.

    Wow Kaisa. I'm so sorry you, DH and J have to be put through this. I couldn't imagine. I wish there was something I could do for you.

    I'm sending lots of good vibes your way and hope things work out very soon. I hope J is holding up all right. Hugs to everyone!

    They would not get involved in my case either and I had a dumper admitting abuse.

    they have some pretty screwy rules for getting involved.

    The Office of the Children's Lawyer may not provide services in the following circumstances:

    1. The child resides outside of Ontario;
    2. The child and/or either parent/party does not reside where the action is being conducted;
    3. There is an outstanding or anticipated order for assessment or mediation, or an assessment or mediation is pending;
    4. An assessment has been completed about custody and access in the year preceding the request;
    5. A review of the case history indicates that there have been multiple assessments or protracted litigation with little possibility of resolution;
    6. There are serious mental health concerns with respect to either parent and/or child, and a mental health assessment has not been undertaken or completed;
    7. Support and/or property issues are the primary concerns and the custody and access arrangements have been relatively stable for an appreciable period of time;
    8. The primary purpose is to obtain evidence to further the litigation;
    9. Other resolution efforts should have occurred and have not been attempted;
    10. The child's situation would not be improved, e.g. where the issue is “joint“ v. “sole“ custody, or where an unrealistic time-sharing plan is being sought, or an applicant seeks to change custody to resolve an access problem, or both parties reside in the matrimonial home etc.;
    11. (a). One or both parties allege abuse and/or neglect and the local Children's Aid Society (CAS) is investigating or should be asked under the Child and Family Services Act to investigate the allegations; or (b). The CAS is or has been involved and has taken a position as to the custody/access arrangements;
    12. Updating the Children's Lawyer's Report that has been served and filed in court under section 112 of the Courts of Justice Act.
