Risks In Emigrating to Canada and To ALL families living in Canada, Including:

Single immigrants or Married immigrants or Immigrants with a family, or Applying for a Canada visa or Professional entry visa or A Canada green card, or Jobs in Canada, working in Canada or a skilled worker in Canada, Sponsorship by those in Canada, or Anyone thinking about family life in Canada, including new couples.

Here is how one's life can be made to go out of control 1) an Executive Summary, then details on 2) the 12 Risks not revealed by Immigration Canada. (References: click on links in red font.) Executive Summary Abstract: Canadas Family Laws are different from laws elsewhere and after you read this ask your family lawyer to explain this to you (not your immigration lawyer because that immigration agent may not always tell you about all of the bad with all of the good). In their present form, the laws are set against rational treatment of families struck by the unfortunate (yet natural) occurrence of separation or divorce. Family Laws in Canada are so hostile to those family members snared by the provincial family courts that the laws may be in part responsible for a measurable decline in immigrants seeking permanent residence in Canada. In May 1997, the Federal Liberal Government made sweeping changes to Family Laws in Canada. The Federal Liberal Government induced Canada's provinces to immediately adopt the same laws, despite their original objections. Paul Martin's Federal Liberals' stated aim was to reduce women's poverty and focused on single-parent females. One month later, the Liberals called a national election (June 1997). But women did not get what they expected in turn for voting for the Liberal Party. In reviewing the cold, clear facts, one reads how womens poverty persists. It remains unchanged from levels in 1997 to present day, a decade and a half after that promise made in June 1997. Families have been decimated by Canada's Family Laws and Family Courts....(more at website).

12 Risks To Immigrants And All Canadians: Here is what it means to be ensnared by Canada's Family Laws and forced to live under Provincial Family Court justice. This explanation is in plain English but is based on provincial family laws, court records and real-life accounts by men prosecuted and persecuted by Canada's family court justices. Considering the odds of separation or divorce in Canada, half of the men in any kind of a 3-month relationship or longer are at risk, at 50/50 odds of falling prey to the life-altering factors as in the following. Know that the rate of failure in Canada of first marriages is 42% (more than 4 out of 10). When that is combined with failures in marriage-like relationships, the odds may be one-in-two that families are dissolving (50/50 odds). Therefore, this cautionary message is aimed at parents and foreign families of men and women emigrating to Canada or to any one already living in Canada. If you marry in Canada or you are married when you move to Canada, but then separate or divorce in Canada, know that either party to the marriage (or livingtogether relationship) can file for separation at any time under Canadian No-fault Divorce. In that case, you or you and your family are at risk of the following renderings by Canada's provincial family courts: (1) Men - Seizure of half of your income, your assets, half your pension income. Confiscated: Half of your earnings, half or more of your assets, plus half of your monthly income from your private or employer-based pension and the federal government pension (the national plan you are forced to contribute to while working in Canada). Plus, the government can force confiscation of 50% of provincial, municipal or local social assistance paid to men if they apply for social assistance to supplement their 1/2-pension income (actually the one-half becomes lessened due to income taxes taken from your assistance at the same rate "as if" the full pension was paid to the pensioner). (2) Seizure of Passport, Professional & Driver's Licenses You are at risk of having your passport and your professional licenses seized including: pilot, pharmacy, medical, locomotive, bus, taxi, heavy equipment or commercial vehicle operator, plus common driver's licenses. These seizures eliminate your freedom of employment choices and freedom of movement. And those seizures may eliminate your ability to earn and to pay support.

(3) Debtor's Prison Reinstated in Canada If you are in support arrears you are at risk of having a nation-wide warrant for your arrest being issued against you. And, you are at risk of being put in jail for up to 6 months per court appearance cycle, and at risk of being re-cycled back into jail the same day you get out to go to court. Family courts in Canada can put you in jail and keep putting you back in jail until you make "satisfactory payment" of the debt to your former spouse. How or if or from where you can produce the money is never a consideration. Sometimes father's relatives or current wives take pity upon the fathers and pay his debt for him just to get him out of jail (what the Enforcement Agencies like to call it, Magic Fountain, the money appears out of thin air). If you don't pay, you may go back to jail until you do. Thereby, there is risk of your long-term incarceration for a (deemed) bad debt; hence, Debtor's Prison. In effect, the Medieval law of debtor's prison has been reinstated in Canada. (4) No Academic Reporting In Forced Tuition Payments You may also be at risk of being forced to pay for their college or university costs up to and including their first degree or to age 24. Unlike jurisdictions in America, where in fairness to the one paying for it, in Canada there are no academic minimum achievement levels required for such students to determine if you continue to pay. So, if a court-ordered supported student fails to obtain passing grades in any semester or quarter term, you are still forced to pay. You are obligated to pay for their academic costs until they attain their 24th birthday or their first degree (if the student ever gets a degree). Their only career choice could be simply to keep going to various post-secondary learning institutions. Their choice of Major Course of Study could continuously change and lead to no conclusion (just aimless drifting from one course to another). They may frequently change universities, downgrading to junior colleges and downgrading again to vocational schools (e.g., hair-and-nails beauty schools). The only limits to this aimless and endless wandering are: to age 24 or their first (if ever) degree. This leaves you likely to pay support to age 24 but the "child" (an adult by then) having nothing to show for it. You will not be allowed to see their academic reports and you can not force

anyone to provide them to you under Canada's laws. Family Laws or the family courts will not obligate the custodial parent to regularly report the status of the children. The children's academic progress or lack of it will not be ordered to be made available to the father. In contrast, fathers of intact families in Canada are not obligated by law to pay for such academic interests (creating two different categories of citizen; discrimination). (5) Taxation Discrimination Legal in Canada Separated fathers pay tax on income they never see. Any support you are ordered to pay is not tax-deductible. Paying support including your children's university or college costs you are ordered to pay is not tax-deductible. Your former mate will not pay income tax on the amounts you pay her (whether she has a job or not). In these cases, Canadian law permits the existence of two sets of rules in taxation of families, discriminating between "intact families" and "extended families." College and university costs are deductible by fathers in one family (intact) while not in another (separated, extended). This exists despite the courts linking members of an extended family (court records and orders linking fathers to custodial parent and children). Income earned by support payers (men) is taxable, and income earned by single women is taxable, however, support income to divorced recipients (women) is not taxable. Thus, taxation discrimination is lawful in Canada on multiple levels. (6) Un-tested Beneficiary says "When Okay" to stop court-ordered support In Canada, there are no legal demands on the custodial support recipient to regularly and periodically provide hard-copy proof of the children's status to anyone: (i) Not to the support payer, and (ii) Not to the support maintenanceenforcement agency, whose sole reason for existence we are led to believe is "responsibility" and "accountability." She can phone it in. A former wife in Canada is entitled to support payments until SHE tells the courts when to stop enforcing payments from a former husband. Unlike other countries where the recipient is required to provide periodic proof of her eligibility for these payments, women in Canada are not required by any legislation to do so. There exists no provincial legislation compelling the custodial parent to periodically send in or produce testable proof of eligibility for continuing support, despite if: She remarries (spousal support) or Any of the children move out of the custodial home (child support), Or if a custodial post-high school student has flunked out of college

or trade-school one or more terms Any one of the "children" (adults) has moved and began living with another young adult.

During the court case there may be or may not be "suggestions" and "discussion" but under the law there are no mandatory requirements upon the custodial parent to report routinely, no "or else lose support" if one monthly report is late or missing. Translated into real-life terms, this is coerced payment without justification. Yet men are often court-ordered to report if income increases but are not required to report if their income decreases. If men's incomes decrease, and men hope to pay less monthly support then they are required to petition the opposite party through the courts to have support adjusted. If support income is disputed, and if men lose, then the court costs and lawyer's fees of his side plus those of the opposite party (see court transcripts). If the man has no cash with which to pay, he may have those costs added to his support account. That addition may put him into "instant arrears" and he may suffer added fees plus additional interest charges until paid in full. There could be a lot more fees appearing suddenly during any of his returns to court. The custodial parent is often represented at no cost to her because men are going to court against "the state" and she is the state's witness. The "state" enforcement agency has legal teams to fight men in court. In effect, her legal fees are paid by taxpayers, men's legal fees are paid by the individual man. Even when she may hire her own lawyer, courts have seen the state agency's lawyers consulting during the session (actively participating). In those cases, men may be challenged by a tag-team of opponents and in an environment shown to be pre-disposed towards the custodial parent (see Gender Bias section report by sworn witnesses in Special Parliamentary Joint Senate and House Committee). Again, men's opposition may consist of tag-teamed efforts from (i) opposing counsels, (ii) gender bias at the judicial level, and (iii) statutory bias at the legislative level (see next). (7) Automatic Arrears Deemed in Chambers + Reverse Onus to Disprove a Negative A fiction cannot rule over reality, or can it? In Canada it can. A judge in court or alone in his chambers can order you into an automatic arrears position by deeming your income to be at any level without having to accept your proof to the contrary (pay stubs or income tax filings).

There are no regulations upon the judge or the courts to accept and rely upon any aspect about your evidence in your case (if facts or anecdotal evidence). Disclosure does not guarantee acceptance or consideration. The Ontario Court of Appeal has decided judges may ignore evidence and impute at will when it comes to determining support payer's income (making arbitrary decisions). Your actual level of income may have no bearing upon what level the judge chooses to set your income. You may be deemed by the court as underemployed. An example: If you lose your job in your regular vocation and have to take a job flipping hamburgers to stay alive you may be deemed as "under employed" for your qualifications (no matter if alternative employers are not hiring anyone). If you have a new lower income it may not be considered by a family court judge who can arbitrarily set your income level for support purposes "as if you are making the same earnings at the job you lost." Counter arguments from you or your representative can go unrecognized or be dismissed by the judge despite the reverse onus of proof having been legislated upon payers (men) in Canada (obligation is on you to disprove a negative, how one proves a negative is beyond rational thought). See Lack of Due Process, next. These are examples of when a fiction can over-rule reality (pay stubs, tax returns or other evidence to the contrary). (8) Absence of Justice - Lack of Due Process Even if you or your representatives file a request for a hearing to defend your submissions or to submit supporting or related evidence in a hearing, the judge can deny you a hearing (lack of due process). In examples of disputed amounts of your income, the judge may deem your case any way s/he wishes without your opportunity to provide a counter argument in a hearing. Case transcripts reveal this absence of justice, this lack of due process, to be perfectly legal in Family Courts. This is a departure from all other jurisprudence in Canada including criminal law. (9) Permanent Arrears, Permanent Debt, Permanently Poor, Put onto a Dead End Your new "instant" arrears may grow to become such a large amount. Arrears increased by monthly interest charges may put you into "permanent" arrears (forever) because you may never earn enough to repay the arrears from out of

the one-half of your income you may be permitted to keep each pay day. The debt is never forgiven by the courts, unless the former and distant spouse agrees to this. There are no means tests for her to see if she needs any part of your pension. Thereby, you can be forced to pay your former mate one half of your pension income until you die whether she pre-deceases you or not (her estate continues to have claim on you even though she may expire before you do). (10) Tripped by Three Strikes Trigger Any arrears in support occurring just 3 times, at any 3 points in time, can trigger these risks. Even if not completely true, her claim to the authorities can seem valid enough to the authorities. A mere phone call may be all that is required to have you "marked" by the enforcement agency (agency operates without oversight). You may be ordered into court with all of your defense costs to be paid by you. Case Records show us that men, not women, paid court costs of the women even when women were decided in the wrong. Refer to discussions on gender bias and unethical practices in Chapter 1, Section E - Gender Bias in Courts, and see, Section F - Unethical Practices by Family Lawyers, found in a Joint Senate and House report (see link at the website). (11) Women's World-wide Web (paid for by "the State") A woman who was married in Canada and living in Canada but then later moving to any where in the world can at her will start enforcement proceeding against you simply by contacting the Enforcement Agency of the Canadian province in which she was divorced. From a mere phone call from her, that government may attempt to hunt you down. The support enforcement agencies using a "carte blanche" pad of court orders can at their whim put you into the same class as Canada's extremely dangerous criminals, launching a manhunt, monitoring communications networks for you, and issuing a nation-wide arrest warrant. A provincial Enforcement Agency may force (compel by court order) any of your friends, relatives, or employers to reveal all information about you. Some provincial support enforcement agencies have paid contractors to review ATM Bank Machine photo records from around the country for images of your face. Thereby, for all intents and purposes, you have become an "enemy of the state." (12) You May Appear in Wanted Postings A Wanted Posting About You may be published on the world-wide web on a

government's website. Provincial governments may post on their website a notice including a photograph and description of you and that you are wanted by them for their purposes. This facilitates the creation of "watchers" or "hunters" any where in the world. Professional bounty hunters or amateurs motivated by money may hunt you down, hoping for a reward from your former mate or others. That search tool is conveniently provided to these watchers by Internet, so that they can better recognize and know more about their target: You. However, there are no built-in safe-guards if in their zealousness they "chase" someone who happens to look like you. That error on their part may result in very costly or even fatal errors for some any where in the world. (Are world economic conditions ripe for amateurs to join the hunt? Could Canada be contributing to accidental deaths in cases of mistaken identity?) Some Final Thoughts on Family Life in Canada Again, common law (living together) or legal marriages are viewed to be the same in Canada. If you or she severs your relationship, the above court orders and rules may suddenly apply. Once you are "tagged" by the state under these orders and rules, you are at risk, and you will be found, controlled, and prosecuted as described above, including being separated from your income, your assets, your pension, and separated from your children (to their detriment as noted by professionals in a post below). All of the above report is based on statutes and case law reports and available to any attorney if he or she wishes to research it. Additionally, there are the court transcripts on file of what are termed by the Family Courts as unreported cases (but on file) about men who have undergone these "renderings" by Canada's Family Courts. And sadly, there are also media reports about some men who have taken to drastic measures, including suicide as a way out.
