Ex-husband does not agree to take abroad the child on holiday. What can I do?

If the former husband does not agree to go along with the child on holiday abroad, the solution is to provide his / her agreement. That is, you can sue it by asking the court to make a decision to supplement the former husband’s consent to obtaining a tourist pass, with a view to moving the juvenile abroad.

In court you have to prove that you are in the situation of not being able to obtain the consent of the former husband to obtain the passport and to travel abroad with his minor. So do not use this procedure if you assume the former husband will not agree and want to be “compelled” to agree.

Before addressing the court, please send them invitations written by mail or other means of communication. If he does not respond, he tries to notify him through a lawyer or even a bailiff. So, if you know the ex-husband does not agree to go along with your child on holiday abroad, prepare yourself early, the trial may take 2-3 months.

FAQ’s

  • What grounds do I need to file for divorce?
    • New York is a no-fault jurisdiction which means the most commonly cited cause is IRRETRIEVABLE BREAKDOWN IN RELATIONSHIP. So, for example, if your spouse had adultery, it is not really relevant to the actual divorce grounds.
  • Do I file a contested divorce or an uncontested divorce?
    • Uncontested means both parties agree to sign a settlement outside of court and are relatively close in terms of what they want in the terms.
  • How much does the divorce process cost?
    • Uncontested divorces are considerably cheaper, the range is between $1,000-$3,000 depending on complexity. For a contested divorce, it will depend on how willing the spouses are to work together, if so, it can cost as little as $7,000 but if there is excessive fighting the divorce can last years and the sky is the limit.
  • How long before I am officially divorced?
    • Fortunately, NY is not a state that requires a separation period. So as long as you and your spouse have been married for at least 6 months and are an NY resident, you can begin the process immediately. If the divorce is not contested it can be completed in as fast as two months and may take as long as eight months. If the divorce is contested and the parties find it challenging to agree, divorce can go on for many years.
