One of the common issues that our family solicitors are asked to advise clients about is what happens on a relationship breakdown if one parent would like to take the children on holiday abroad.
Each case depends on its own facts and therefore we give specific advice tailored to each of our clients’ circumstances. Generally speaking, if both parents have parental responsibility for their children (which is usually the case) then the parent seeking to take the children on holiday has to have the consent of the other parent (and anyone else with parental responsibility) to do so, preferably in writing. Otherwise, a Court order will be needed.
If you would like more information and advice about taking children abroad or any other family law issue, then please contact us on 020 7277 0110 to speak to one of our specialist solicitors.
