    I have 9 years old son in Victoria BC living with his mom and possibly new family. I am legally his father, he has my last name. I have spent first 3 years of his life 24/7 with him. Took a big role in his early life. Once the differences and disagreements betwen me and his mom, and my visitor status issues in Canada split us up I was coming once a year for two months. For last 3 years I completely lost contact with him because his mom decided so.

    What options do I have in getting some type of right to stay in touch with him and visit him.

    I live in Serbia but I have citizenships of both Serbia and Croatia.


    Thank you

    Blessings!

    No one here is very familiar with Canadian law - this site is primarily for US law issues.

    On one of your visits to Canada you should sit down with a family law attorney and discuss your issues.

    Regardless of what was on the jurisdiction list, you cannot deal with this issue from Europe. This is not a do-it-yourself matter, even for a local.

    You need to speak with a BC attorney who deal with divorce and family law.
