A: The answer to your question is not a simple "yes" or "no" because it does not necessarily have anything to do with custodial vs. non-custodial parent. It depends more on what the timesharing agreement says that was signed and entered by the Judge, and if it addresses out of country travel. If it doesn't, then your family (parent) should contact an attorney to discuss how to address this.
