What if my ex won’t give me permission to take my children on a trip?
- Clients will call and ask what to do if their ex won’t give them permission to go on a trip with their kids.
- If your child’s other parent refuses to consent to issuance of a passport for a planned trip – or refuses to give you the passport if they have it – the family court can address the issue.
- It is important to deal with these issues well in advance to ensure that you have the required documentation.
- A court will rarely deny a parent’s request for a child’s passport in aid of a planned trip.
How can I get a passport for my child(ren)?
- Clients can obtain a passport for their child if both parents consent.
- Otherwise, the matter may need to be resolved in court because both parents must be present until a child reaches a certain age.
- Neither parent can apply to obtain a child’s passport without permission from the other parent or a court.
Can I relocate to a different state if I have sole custody of my children?
- If a parent is looking to relocate, that person should petition the Family Court to seek permission to do so
- Having Sole Custody of a child does not, in and of itself, give that parent permission to relocate
