I have 4 children for my ex common law. We have not been together for almost 3 years now. I am now remarried. My husband

Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: Hello. I have 4 children for my ex common law. We have not been together for almost 3 years now. I am now remarried. My husband lives in Jamaica and I want to take my children for a vacation there. I called my ex to advise him of my plans, but he is telling me that I cannot take them out of the country. I have not taken him to court for child support. I instead let him give me what ever he can. Do I have any leverage here. The children love with me 100% of the time. Their father picks them up every Wedensday for 20 minutes. Please advise.
JA: Who currently has legal custody?
Customer: I guess I do. We never made any agreements.
JA: Is there a child custody order in place?
Customer: No. We just separated and I took the kids.
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: No. Not really. I just want to be able to take my kids on vacation

Legal Ease, Expert

I am sorry to hear this.

If he won't agree them you can apply to the court for an order allowing you to travel with the kids without his consent.

But you should tell him that if you are forced to do that they you will be seeking an order for your costs.

Does that make sense?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you.
