Killeen, TX asked in Child Custody and Family Law for Texas

Q: Being pregnant and French citizen, I want to deliver in France with my family. Do I need the authorization of the dad?

Hi! I am pregnant with a guy here and we broke up about a month ago. I left our common apartment to stay with my sister because he was neglecting me at home. I’ve been at my sister’s for 2 weeks and he didn’t ask for the baby even less for me. I’ve been thinking and I want to go back to France to deliver there because I want to be with my mom and my friends. I already have the ticket and I am planning to tell my ex (the dad) that I want to deliver in France. I am leaving on Tuesday and want to tell him on Saturday. As I’ve been asking around people are afraid he could prevent me from traveling like he can say I want to run with the baby or send me the cops at the airport. I wanted to know what are my rights and if he can stop me from travelling back to my home country.

A: As long as you have a valid passport, have no outstanding warrants for any crime you may have committed, and France would not prevent you from flying in because of the Coronavirus, then there is no legal way that your baby's father can keep you here.
