Do You Need a Travel Consent Form or Letter?

You need a child travel consent form, also called a consent to travel, if:

  • Your children under the age of 18 are leaving the country with just one parent for any length of time
  • Your children under the age of 18 are leaving the country alone or with someone other than the custodial parents

You have probably heard people say they have never been asked to produce the Consent to Travel document. Please don’t let this tempt you to save the minimal cost of getting this document notarized. Border guards have every right to refuse to accept a child travel consent form that has not been notarized and your eagerly anticipated trip could end up delayed or even cancelled. Getting notarization only takes a few minutes and is well worth the trip to see us.

What to Provide if You Need a Child Travel Consent Form Drafted for You

  • Names and contact information of parents consenting to the trip
  • The names, birthdates and passport numbers of the children travelling
  • The city and country the children will be visiting
  • The reason for the trip
  • Departure and return dates
  • Name and contact information of the parent or other adult(s) going on trip with children, as well as their relationship to the children

Words cannot express how grateful and thankful our family is for the attention and many hours of detailed work that was completed over the past year by J. E. Fletcher Professional Corporation to handle the execution of probate of our parents estate.
 
We are very happy our parents selected John Fletcher to fulfill all the legal requirements to get closure on this part of the estate settlements. Our family is in total agreement that our parents would have been very glad to know their wishes were looked after exactly as they requested and with no difficulties for any of us. It made our lives much easier.
 
Again thank you — we want you to know we appreciated all the support we received from you, John. We would definitely recommend J. E. Fletcher Professional Corporation to others who may require legal assistance and/or representation.
