Hello There,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

If you do not have a valid PR card, you may want to apply for a Permanent Resident Travel Document. The Permanent Resident Travel Document (PRTD) application is for Permanent Residents abroad who do not have a valid PR card and need proof of status to return to Canada. You can find more information regarding the application here in the Permanent Resident Travel Document Instruction Guide and Application. If you are outside of Canada, and would like to make a case-specific enquiry, feel free to contact IRCC using their web form or a local visa office.

You may also wish to consult a reputable and registered immigration consultant or an immigration lawyer familiar with immigration issues and family law regarding your situation.

According to the Settlement.Org article, What happens to my children if I get divorced?:
There are 2 types of child custody in Ontario. If you and the other parent have joint custody over your children, then this means you both have to agree on major decisions for your children's well-being. You cannot make a decision for your children without an agreement with the other parent.
If you or the other parent are given sole custody of the children, then this means that one of you can make all the important decisions for them even if the other parent disagrees. The parent that is not given sole custody will usually still be given access to visit their children and be given information about the children's wellbeing, health, education, and more.
There are different levels of access you or the other parent can be given to your children, depending on your family history, character and level of responsibility.


Steps to Justice provides users with legal information and options for next steps. They have an extensive section on family law issues that may be helpful.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to post them here.

We hope this information is helpful.
Sincerely,

Your Settlement.Org Team
