Q: if the mother of my child is a non citizen, but does have a social, can she take my child and move away??
she has never applied for or is a citizen and she wants to leave the county and/or country with our child. I tried helping her with citizenship and she refused. Now she wants to take my child away for a 3rd time now and just leave with her. She has no citizenship but has been employed for her adult life. what steps can i take to keep my daught in place being that the mother is unstable and has issues which she implants thoughts in her head and starts blaming. but i realize now also what she is blaming is everything that she is actually guilty of.
A: Whether your permission is needed for the child to travel internationally depends on whether you are on the child's birth certificate and have custody, as well as what the airline and country of destination regulations are. A family law attorney may be able to get an order forbidding removal of your child from the state where the child resides. Best wishes!
A: This is more of a family law question, so consult with a family law attorney. It seems unlikely she could take the child out of the country without your permission, however.
