Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: I am wondering about my rights regarding province to province travel with my children. My ex husband has told me that I am only allowed to go visit my family out of province if I fly or drive with another adult in the vehicle. The drive is 12 hours, and there is no other adult willing to travel with me and back. Does he have the authority to halt my trip and control the method of travel?
JA: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any papers in family court?
Customer: Currently I am having my divorce papers drafted with a clause that allows me to take our kids every summer for two weeks. But we have no other legal papers in family court at this moment
JA: Family law varies by state. What state are you in?
Customer: Canada. British Columbia
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: no

If that is the case then it sounds like you are legally allowed to take your child. However, your ex may seek to bring a motion to try to prevent the trip if for whatever reason he feels that it is in breach of some agreement or otherwise not in the child's interest. In such case, it would be up to the judge to decide what happens. However, in absence of some order or agreement stating otherwise, it seems you are able to take the child on the trip as you please.
Does that answer your question?
