Good Day,

Please can you provide advice. I was reading through the requirements for international travel with a minor and saw that a letter of consent is not required when the custodial parent has sole custody. I am unsure of whether this applies to me. 

The exact wording in my divorce order states “the parties shall maintain joint guardianship of the minor child, and custody of the minor child shall be awarded to the plaintiff” (the plaintiff being myself). 

Does this grant me sole custody and would I need my son’s father’s consent when travelling and obtaining my son’s passport?

Thank you for your assistance.

Kind regards,

Shelly Guile
