Fair enough. My comments are therefore applicable to all those who are hellbent about spending thousands upon thousands to obtain sole custody (of children <14) without understanding what sole custody really offers. Most often, parents are hellbent on obtaining sole custody in a possessive nature and as a mere means to retaliate against the other parent.

I believe it affects passport applications and passport possession. The mother's signature is required on the passport application until the child is 16 if custody is joint. After she turns 16, the child can apply for her own passport.

In the original poster's case, I'm guessing the passport application may be relevant between the time the pandemic dies down and daughter's 16th birthday.

Right now D14 is legally permitted to, say, undergo a sex change operation without consent of one of the joint guardians, but she may not apply for a passport.

In 98.324% of the cases the "sole custody" request is exactly that. As well, in many cases, even clinicians and other professionals won't move forward with anything unless both parents agree despite a court order. Their professional practice requirements and ethical obligations are primary to their duty of care not a court order for "sole custody".

You can sever the issue of passport nonsense from sole custody. No one will ever win "sole custody" on a passport issue. Ultimately, in the pandemic no one was traveling, passports are not needed and it could be years before people start to "leisure travel" again.

Travel is not important enough to fight over. Canada is a huge place, lots of places to go and see. Travel is the fight for rich people. 95% of separated parents have no money and can't travel.

Also if you fight over a passport in court the only people traveling are the lawyers because they will suck both parents dry.
