My son is now 9 months old and his father kicked him and I out of our home when he was 6 weeks. We were married for only 6 months. We have gone to court, as he filed for divorce the after he kicked us out. I currently have primary care and he has 2 supervised visits for an hour each week. He has only used two of his visits and has not seen our son since the end of September. I recently found out as a friend of mine told me to contact the court house to find out the custody that it has not been established. I have been trying to contact the mediator to help establish custody as I cannot afford a lawyer as I am on government assistance. He also has not been paying his child support. The relationship was abusive physically and mentally. What is considered abandonment in alberta, canada?? How should I go about finalising custody court or mediation??? I am so nervous about this whole situation but need to establish sole custody!! Please help!
