If you have a Residence Order, you can take your children abroad for up to a month without your ex partner’s consent.

However, if you do not have residence, and you wish to take your children abroad for a holiday, it’s a tougher issue. Legally you’re advised to have the agreement of those with Parental Responsibility, and you should obtain it in writing.
