Ask a Family Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bite more information required to fully assist you:
-Are you in England or Wales?
-How long have the current arrangements been in place?
-How long prior to this was the father not involved?
-Is the journey for a holiday or relocation?
Is there a child arrangement order (for residence) in place in your favour?
Thank you. Unfortunately, as he has parental responsibility he can object to travel abroad and you will require his consent to travel with your son. However, his consent can only be reasonably withheld and if he continues to refuse to consent to the holiday you will need to apply to court for a specific issue order under form C100 and a £215 court fee. You will need to demonstrate that it is only a holiday, together with details of where you are staying, a return ticket and a way for the father to contact you abroad.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for answering your question without a positive rating. Thank you
