passport was created by Robby S
Dear Sirs,

My exwife is taking my daughter to a country where a visa is required. I have provided a consent letter and now she is asking for a copy of my passport. The requirements for that country does state a copy of the passport is required for both parents. I emailed the high commission for that country and they first mentioned that a passport copy is needed and then when I replied mentioning that i don't feel safe giving a copy of my passport to someone i do not trust they mentioned a letter is fine.

My exwife's solicitor is threatening to take me to court if I do not give this copy as this is stopping my exwife getting a visa.

When I read fraud prevention websites it mentions that you should not share your passport with anyone you do not trust. I want to avoid court proceedings, is there anything to be concerned about giving this copy?

Many thanks

Robby

Hi Robby,

It sounds like your ex has a legitimate reason for asking for a copy of your passport and you have verified that this is a requirement yourself.

What is it that you think she will do with a photocopy of your passport? Has she a history of forging documents or fraud?

To your ex wife it probably appears as though you are being deliberately obstructive to her obtaining a visa for herself and the child.

What would they do if you didn't have a passport?

I'm guessing she wouldn't be able to get a Visa.

Hi there,

She stole my private documents when we were living together and presented them in court during the hearings and got rid of all expensive family jewellery and showed no assets in her form E. She has capability to cheat and lie for money.

I just wanted to understand if there is a possibility of fraud that can be committed if someone has a passport copy.

Thanks.

Robby

Do you have written confirmation from the high commission saying the letter without the copy of the passport is fine?

If so, send this to ex's solicitor along with the letter.

I have but the solicitor mentioned that they will not accept this email as they want the requirements to be met as set.

Thanks
