Stay-at-home moms, listen up...You are putting yourself in a very bad position as I did. I stayed home to look after my kids I thought that was a privilege until I had to go through the family court to get some support. I have spent all of my savings paying lawyers to try and get support to no avail. My husband worked for his family who cooked the books and said he wasn't working. The judge suspended my support with no proof and left me to pay for everything. I have no job and have to sell my house while the dead beat got away scot free!
The lawyers will take your money until you can't feed your kids because that's what they are trained to do. The Barristers’ Society will not take complaints against lawyers especially if they have volunteered for them. The judges scream and holler if you try to self represent and will go against you simply because they want you to spend your money on lawyers because they were once lawyers. Go to work ladies and be self sufficient because the men in this province are not required by law to support their kids. Family court is a business! —Do not waste your money on Family Court or lawyers in this city!
