Hi, thank you for your question. Where exactly in Turkey are you planning to travel to?
Thanks for confirming. Firstly you should know the legal position. You will both have parental responsibility by virtue of marriage, and you are both required to obtain the explicit consent of the other parent if planning to take a child out of the jurisdiction, unless there is a child arrangement order (for residence) in place which allows the party named in the order to take a child out of the jurisdiction for up to 1 month without requiring the permission of the other parent.
The other parent cannot unreasonably withhold consent and if consent is withheld then an application to court for a specific issue order, under form C100 and a £215 court fee to the child's local family court will need to be made.
Having considered your intended travel to Turkey, I appreciate that the FCO guidance states that there are no current issues with that area, however, the mother's argument would be that the country is currently unstable and that there is a nationwide state of emergency in place.
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 your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
