There needs to be more information provided, such as where the parties are normally domiciled, has there been a formal, civil marriage apart from any religious ceremony and what agreement or agreements have been entered into regarding the children? How old are the children and where would they normally be going to school?  Are the children both carrying Canadian passports?  What financial arrangements are in place regarding the children?
