My wife and I recently had our first child but is suffering

Customer Question

My wife and I recently had our first child but is suffering from postnatal depression. I have arranged councilling both but she has threatened on 3 separate occasions that when our son finally receives his passport she will take him away back to the UK (we live in the UAE) . I have recently started a new job but am scarred every day I go to work that when I return they will be gone. My question is can she legally leave the country with our son without both parents consent?

there

José M. :

According to the law one of the parent could take the son and leave the country even when most airlines ask sign of the other parent

José M. :

In order to avoid the chance the best is to ask the judge in court to retain the pasport of the child

José M. :

If there is a judicial order which does not allow the minor go out it will become implossible and you will be sure it does not occur

José M. :

Ask your attorney to ask the order to the family court and you will be sure

José M. :
