Have any men here been through a divorce in Canada? Any recommendations on getting full custody of our son? There has been no abuse of any sort, and we haven't separated as of yet, I just find it harder and harder to respect the opinions expressed by her church (which she embraces wholeheartedly, things like disrespect of other religious groups/homosexuals, etc). I don't want my son (1.5 y.o.) to grow up with those influences, so I have decided to separate from and divorce her, and pursue full custody of my son. Anyone who has been through something similar, or is more familiar with divorce/family law in canada, and could provide some advice on how to proceed, it would be greatly appreciated. I am also pretty sure that she will also want full custody, and will quite likely go to court over it. Money is an issue, as I have been in school, and she was on maternity leave until recently. As well, if anyone knows what laws there are relating to one parent simply absconding with the child, and what the other can do to prevent it from happening/get the child back after it happens, please let me know. Thank you in advance. PS. Before you ask, yes I have tried discussing these issues with her. Every time her religion comes up in conversation, she gets very defensive and it turns into a big fight. She wasn't so religious when we married, but she has changed since then.
