Q: What is my recourse when my ex wife takes my minor child out of the country with out my consent which is in our PSA
A: The court can go to the police and charge him with parental interference. This is a second degree offense if overseas. I would have to know a lot more about the order and PSA to give a truly definitive answer and to advise on best course of action.
You have options here, seek a consultation with an attorney.
A: There is an insufficient factual basis to answer your questions and concerns. Your situation requires an in person consultation with an experienced matrimonial attorney, who will know exactly how to proceed. Do not let geographic restrictions get in the way of retaining the best attorney. Pick the best attorney you can find and remember one rule: a good attorney is generally never cheap, and a cheap attorney is generally never good so don't choose based on price.
A: Thank you for your question.
You can file an application with the court to her surrender the passport to the court and force her to seek your consent or court permission if she wants to travel. I recommend that you schedule an appointment with a family law attorney to discuss your next steps.
I hope this was helpful to you.
