Hi, thank you for your question. As there is a care order in place the local authority share parental responsibility with you and you will need their consent to travel abroad, so legally they can oppose this and if they do not agree you will need to apply to court for a decision. This can be done as a specific issue order application under form C100 and a £215 court fee to your local family court.Have they outlined why they are refusing to consent to the holiday?
