Hi, thank you for your question. Where was the child born and is the father named on his birth certificate? Where does the child mainly reside and what are the arrangements for the father to see him?
Are there any formal court orders in place, if so what?
Thank you. Under English law, you would need consent from the father as he has parental responsibility and you may be stopped at the border and questioned about travelling with the child. However, the child appears to permanently reside in America and therefore the father will unlikely have grounds to pursue a report of child abduction.
