Travelling abroad with children can get complicated because governments want to do their best to prevent parents from taking their children out of the country and not coming back, which is also known as international child abduction.
If you are vacationing with your children out of the country and are married, some countries (such as Mexico), may require you to obtain your spouse’s permission in order to take your children out of the country without him/her. If you are divorced this is not necessary, although you will need to produce a certified copy of your custody order in order to travel to and from Mexico.
Be aware that certain countries, such as Australia, Canada, Israel, Lebanon, and Mexico, will not admit children travelling without parents or with only one parent unless they have notarized permission from the absent parent(s) to do so.
If you are travelling with your children to one of the aforementioned countries, you will need to have your custody order certified with an apostille. Atlanta Apostille will help you get the certification you need quickly and efficiently so you can travel without delay or worry.
