As you know by now, the father has 50/50 custody and equal shared access of their son.
Although the Father has 50/50 custody and equal shared access, the mother held on to their son for 30 consecutive days because of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
The Father had requested an Arbitator over a month ago because he knew with 100% certainty that she was going to do this because of COVID 19. We had previously engaged the services of an Arbitrator on an ad hoc basis as part of the court order to assist with abusive crap like this.
This arbitration process is taking place using a written submission process because of the pandemic.
To give you an idea just how unreasonable she is, the mother submitted the following to the Arbitrator:
During the Pandemic, the mother wants to have their son remain with her 100% of the time until the following conditions are met:
The remaining 10 pages of her so-called “evidence” consists of unfounded assumptions, false allegations, and utter madness.
Now, the Father await the arbitrator’s decision.
The father won the Arbitration.
The Arbitrator called the mother out on several issues including the following:
Finally, the Arbitrator wrote that “the Arbitration award shall be enforced by the city’s Police Service”
For the 3rd time, the father was denied access to his son on Father’s Day.
This specific Father’s Day issue had been addressed (and resolved in the Father’s favour) by a Mediator in 2014, the court-appointed Clinical Psychologist in 2016, and the Family Court Judge in 2017.
The mother insisted, in 4 separate emails leading up to Father’s Day 2020, that because the Arbitration Award did not discuss Father’s Day, that he had no rights to spend time with their son on Father’s Day.
The Father replied that there are at least 2 dozen items that are in the Justice’s Final Order (2017) that are not covered in the COVID-19 Arbitration Award (2020).
The Father did not get to see his son for Father’s Day.
The Arbitrator is currently dealing with this issue.
