Applications for access

If you are not the custodial parent but are having difficulty getting access to your child, you may apply under Article 21 of the Hague Convention for help in creating access arrangements, or having existing access arrangements enforced.  You should complete the Hague application form (in English or French/German/Italian), and include with your application a copy of any court order or agreement containing the access terms.  The Central Authority can help you to complete the Hague application. 

If the child is in Saskatchewan, The Children’s Law Act can be used to enforce the foreign access order.  The ordinary procedure of applying for an order to enforce access terms would be followed.

If the child resides in another country, you or your lawyer should contact the Central Authority for Saskatchewan.  You may also want to hire a lawyer in that country to bring an application there to enforce access rights under their legislation.
