    Default Traveling overseas

    When traveling overseas, what do you need from the child's father? Like a written note or anything? Some form of acknowledgment?

    They need to sign the passport application.

    Awesome. But if he has already signed the passport can he change his mind down the track and stop me and the kids from leaving the country?

    Hi! Obviously you want to let the dad know but unless your child's passport has been 'flagged' then the other parent can not stop you going. If they agree then you do not need anything. 'Flagging' a child means the AFP are involved but if you can avoid this then do so or it will stop you or him taking the child overseas. My information is worst case scenario and hopefully you are not in that position.

    Nope, thankfully not in that situation at all. We have been given an amazing opportunity of a 5 week holiday throughout America at Christmas time. Things are turning to poop with DH and didn't want to risk the kids not being able to go on this once in a lifetime trip. I don't think he would be enough of a jerk to stop them but hey, you never know. Anger can make for some pretty nasty people (but then again I told him I would still go without the kids and he would need to take them for 5 weeks. I would never leave them but he bought it and is too lazy to be a sole career for more than a day or so)

    If the kids have a valid passport and are not on an airport watch list then you are fine to go.

    The only way he "could stop them" is to go to court. Once they have a passport.
