The custody part and taking them out of province is interesting. I was at college with someone who had the kids in the week and they went to their fathers at weekends. I think this was joint custody. Anyroad she took a job in Ottawa and the father went to children's court to challenge her moving them just 3 hours away. The father now has custody in the week and she has them at the weekends, this is even after she moved back from Ottawa. Seems the decision was based on her working shifts, that the kids would not have to move schools, find new friends,new hockey teams - and they were asked their preference by the judge.

I'm guessing the kids are either old enough to make this decision themselves, or the Father has sole custody.

Whatever the details, living in a caravan through the winter in Ontario will be tough.

Do you have an authority for that, or did your lawyer tell you that down the pub?

I think people were just a little confused. I wish you the best of luck with this.

I'm sure you've already tried this, but if I were in your position I would try to get the kids and their Dad to understand just how much this will affect you. If he (the Dad) is happy for you to live in a caravan through the winter just so you can be near your kids, you could point out just how selfish he is being.

Would it not just be easier to rent a place for the winter. I'm sure there must be some suitable housing that isn't too expensive. Try looking for something that you know may be empty over the winter. Maybe you could convince the owner to let you rent it instead of leaving it empty.

I'm sorry the thread went off track but certainly some of us tried to be helpful. My friend's experience in Ontario doesn't seem to fit with a 'walking law'. She was told that the children's wishes are considered but that the court will do what they think is best for them and so may override what they say. In her case neither parent was considered to be better or worse than the other and the children were to stay in the area that they already knew.

As for lawyers, ask another one.

I did a quick google on the "walking law" and the only hit I found mentions it applies to kids over the age of 12. If I were you I'd get to the bottom of this and if you have any wiggle room, use it. As fledermaus says, try asking another lawyer.

I found this interesting list of ages and responsibilities for children in Ontario

You can leave home at 16 it seems.

I'm lost on this.

If the OP currently lives in Saskatchewan (as per first post in thread) and the ex-husband lives in Ontario, how does this so called "walking law" apply?

I just read this. Some of the content is quite bizarre.

However, according to this you can live with someone else against the wishes of your legal guardian if you are 14 or older. It doesn't mention this for <14.
