When Alex, Paige and their Dad fled Canada, they gave up everything - their home, car, business income and most of their personal property. They traded a comfortable family life in a nice neighbourhood, close to family and friends, for a life on the run - in hiding, afraid, saving every penny. They had no choice. Due to the super-strict immigration policies in France, Dad is not permitted to work. They rely on their savings, a small amount of external business income and the generosity of family, Friends and donors to survive.

DEADBEAT BIOLOGICAL MOTHER
Fact. Biological mother hasn't paid a cent in child support since the girls were six years old (2015). She has contributed nothing to their health care, education, basic living, extracurricular activities, entertainment or anything else that kids need. So Dad filed a complaint. She is presently under investigation by French police because in France not paying child support is a crime that could lead to time in prison. The chart below shows what she owes and how it was calculated.
