Children''s Court
Hi, I have received a report from the family advocate and family counsellor recommending that residence of my 2 children be awarded to me. They have in the report that there is sufficient reasons to warrant the removal of the clildren out of my ex wife''s care. On the Report it has a Case Number and Children''s court details. My question is: 1) Do I need a lawyer to represent me in the Childrens court? 2) How much weight does the recommendation and report have?
My ex wife wanted to take away my parental rights by making bogus allegations that were found to be untrue and just a result of sour grapes. GDAD - I would appreciate your insight as well.
