Anytime the Children's Aid Society (the Society) becomes involved with a family, it is very important to reach out to an experienced family lawyer for advice. While it may be difficult, the allegations contained in a child protection application must confronted and faced head on.
If the allegations are confronted and steps are taken to address the Society's concerns, it may be possible to minimize the intrusiveness and the duration of the intervention.
After child protection proceedings are brought against you, you will be under tremendous stress and your life will be placed under the microscope. It is important that you keep your cool and try to put your best foot forward. The process can be long and difficult. It is natural to be frustrated, but hostile and uncooperative behaviour can be used against you. You should review the child protection document in detail and then bring it to a lawyer for advice.
