Hello

My ex-common law partner left the country a year ago with my two daughters (5-7 y.o.) when we traveled together to Russia for vacation. Unfortunately she did not return to the country as I did before them because of my job in Canada.



She's now asking if the kids need my authorization to travel abroad with their grand parents only, not with the mother.

I was granted the custody of the kids by the court in January but the mother never returned to Canada so the decision has not been effective.

Do the kids might have problems travelling abroad with their relatives even having authorizations from both parents?



They have dual citizenship and are planning to travel to Europe using their Canadian passports.


Thanks in advance for any information.

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be concerned about this situation.

You can find some information regarding what the Government of Canada recommends on the Government of Canada website in the Children and travel section.

If you have any questions regarding this situation in relation to family law and custody, you may want to contact the nearest Family Law Information Centre (FLIC) to speak to an Information and Referral Coordinators (IRCs).

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
