Drive over the border and fly from a US airport. You only need the child's birth certificate to cross by car.

Bingo. Excellent backup plan.

I think it is a great idea.

I'd just save yourself further anxiety and get your travel agent to make the changes. Let your ex think she has succeeded. Tell your daughter nothing besides "we are going on xx date and we are going to Disneyland" - provide no further information.

The only outstanding issue is an amended travel consent from the other parent as well as the child's birth certificate.

Warning to anyone:

If you are in a high conflict divorce... It isn't the best idea to plan a trip out of the country. ^^^ This happens a lot. Best to resolve the parental issues prior to going on a vacation.

What if you're already divorced and want to take your kids to FlorIda during the Christmas break and the other parent won't allow it?

My advice stands. High conflict. Don't travel until you resolve the conflict.

I agree with you in a sense but I also disagree with you.

I disagree with you because a case can take many years to be resolved by the courts.

There are 8 weeks of summer holidays and 2 weeks of Christmas holidays and a week of spring holiday throughout a custody proceeding, every year that it progresses.

Travel and vacation is good for kids, it helps them grow and mature and have different life experiences.


To keep a child home all holiday long for the next 5 years just because you're in a custody dispute is completely unreasonable.

Parents should be facilitating travel with the other parent and not frustrating it, especially when there are no genuine concerns and the courts don't have any genuine concerns.


If custody cases resolved within 6 months, then I would agree with you. When they take decades to resolve, that is where I disagree with you.

Florida is not the only holiday destination. Disneyland is not the only place kids will enjoy. Take the kids somewhere in Canada - Vancouver, Halifax and Montreal are all excellent child-friendly destinations. Don't get fixated on the idea that all kids need the Disneyland magic (it is very overrated and not really a mind-broadening experience, unless you're deep into consumerism). Your high-conflict divorce may mean that your travel is restricted (unless you want to spend hours and $$$$$ fighting with Mom about it), but that doesn't mean the kids have to stay home for years.

I have a great deal of friends who take their kids to Great Wolf Lodge and love it.

Your ex is going to be extra difficult while the case progresses. Its going to work for you that shes difficult but against you during the situation.

Either you simply request the passport and the letter by a certain date 30 days (or more) in advance and then push an emergency motion when she stalls or you just accept for the next little while youll have to skip these types of vacations.
