No you are renewing a passport. She still needs consent to travel and a letter.

Doesn’t matter. She still needs written permission to take them out of the country.

Thank you.


A little update.


On Friday I went to passport office and spent 2 hours there waiting to sign my paper but I didn't know I could sign it home or anywhere else. she also was wrong when she said the child will have to sign it too in front of a passport person. But that's ok. Tonight or tomorrow I will call her and mention school, time with the child and other travel details when she gets them. She is supposed to leave in 3 weeks but still no airplane tickets. When you travel to Europe/Balkans you better buy tickets 2-3 months earlier otherwise they will cost $3-4K. She says she is looking for something around $2000. Unless she has minimum 6K for tickets she won't be able to go.

Sounds fishy. Any possibility she may already have tickets and travel details but doesn't want to share? And, is child supposed to be returning to same school as last year? If so, you don't need to register child again. The school assumes you are returning unless notified otherwise. I don't know but sounds like your ex is just being difficult. You know her best.

Do not call her. Send her a polite email asking for information on the trip, schooling etc. Calling doesn't leave a paper trail. You want her responses in writing.

I have travelled many times to Europe with my children. I was never, ever asked for a travel consent letter. The kids do not even have my last name. Only once, the officer asked 'where is dad?". My then 7 year old kid looked a little panicky, then answered "We are divorced". The officer did not blink and waived us through. So your ex might very well be able to travel even though you did not sign the letter.

I concur that Canada’s exit controls are pretty much nil and I also have never been asked for the travel consent letters I carry. My eldest has even gone travelled internationally as 13 year old with a man of a different ethnicity and name and they were never asked for any consent letters. But if you refuse to sign the passport you look like an asshole. Maybe ask that her lawyer hold the passports until you have received the info you require. Then if she does a runner her lawyer will be in hot water before the judge.
