We have a court order or agreement regarding parenting time, but I am legitimately afraid for the safety of the Child(ren) if they go back to him/her.
a. You are not required to put your children into a dangerous situation just because there is an agreement or court order, however, if you do make a decision to deny the other parent his/her parenting time on that basis, you should be prepared for the other parent to apply to the courts for his/her parenting time to be restored and to be given make-up time for any parenting time lost.
b. If you are legitimately concerned for the safety of your child(ren) when they are in the other parent’s care, it is appropriate for you to call the Ministry of Children and Family Development and report your concern and a social worker will investigate the matter and take whatever action may be required to ensure the safety of the child(ren).
