THE CHILDREN’S AID SOCIETY (CAS) HAS TAKEN MY CHILD. WHAT DO I DO?
This is a very difficult time for a parent. The Children’s Aid Society (CAS) is interfering in your life and telling you how to parent your child. Maybe you haven’t been getting your kids to school on time or they have missed a lot of school. Maybe there are issues with drugs or domestic violence. This type of court case is not only very complicated, but it will be the most important thing you ever have to deal with. The stress can be overwhelming. You need a lawyer who specializes in cases involving child protective services. This is not a time to worry about the cost of hiring a lawyer. If you qualify for Legal Aid then they will pay for your lawyer. Contact Legal Aid Ontario by telephone and get approved for a legal aid certificate. Hire an experienced child protection lawyer (such as the ones at GOLDSTEIN Divorce & Family Law Group). We will immediately assess your case and explain the court and CAS process to you. Our lawyers will help you navigate your way through this so that the Children’s Aid Society (CAS) and the court are satisfied that you can parent your child without any further involvement of the court or child protective services.
