Holiday abroad was created by barnabyrudge
Hi there,
I am keen to take my kids, 7 and just under 2, abroad (Spain) for a few days at Easter. Obviously, I need consent from my ex for a foreign trip. Have thus far done a few trips with them in UK, 4,5 and 6 nights, all with great success. Is a 4-5 night trip abroad a reasonable ask, given age of the little one? Thoughts?

I dont see whay not. I would seek permission, but if it is refused on the grounds on the little one being too young, then perhaps agree that you can take him when they are a little older. You dont want to rock the boat too much when it comes to access.

Thanks for that. I have verbal agreement, but am wondering whether I need to have it in writing. Does one need a letter of consent from the other person with parental responsibility?

It's best to get the consent in writing either from your ex spouse/partner or from her solicitor - then if you are challenged by the authorities at the airport/ferry port you can produce written consent.
