Exclusive possession is a court order that says only one partner can stay in, or return to, the home and the other partner isn't allowed on the property. If there are children, usually the order also includes that the children are allowed on the property. The order is usually temporary. The court doesn't decide who owns the home or who rented it when deciding which partner can stay in it.
A child is in extended society care when they are in the care and custody of the Children’s Aid Society and they have to stay in their care until one of the following happens:
- the court changes the order
- the child turns 18
- the child gets married
- the child is adopted
