Wife was originally presumed fit; however, this presumption will be easily rebutted by showing her alcohol/drug abuse and by the fact that she is permitting her children to live in a house where she is being abused. This finding of family violence under Sec. 150.002 will be sufficient to overcome the initial presumption. The maternal Grandparents will probably not be awarded custody only, if the grandparents can convince the court that the father is unfit because he allowed his children to be subjected to his unfit Wife’s care for eight years prior to leaving her do the Grandparents have any possible case.

Others settled at Chignecto and in Granville, New Dublin, New Donegal (Pictou) and in parts of Hants County.
Single-parent Adoption For more than 4000 years, adoption is an ever-present process in the world’s culture. First mentioned in the Babylonian Code of Hammurabi, a well-preserved ancient law code, adoption was used by some of the oldest cultures such as the Romans, Greeks, Egyptians, Germans and Japanese, and in 1921 Ontario passed the Adoption Act, becoming the first Canadian province in which the adoption process was regulated by its government (Patterson, par. 2).

Marital status does not diminish the love, proper care or, most important, the bright future, one can give a child; hence, for many reasons, single people can make good parents.
About 2000 years before the birth of Christ and until then, Ancient Egypt developed and did some things worth remembering.
