I have read a few posts regarding this topic already but I thought I would look for additional advise. My ex-husband and I share joint custody of our daughter. My daughter will be accompanying me on a cruise in a few weeks and it has been suggested (since our last names are different) that I have a notarized letter, signed by my ex-husband, stating that he is aware of my travel plans as they involve my daughter and has granted his permission as the other parent. I think this is smart idea and I will have no problem from the ex about this. My question is this...........does anyone out there have an example of a letter that I could use? Not sure of the legal-eeze that I should use and if a letter with standard language exists out there, I would really appreciate recieving a copy. Thanks
I e-mailed carnival about this as my children have a different surname and they informed me I only needed the childrens passport, so thats all I am taking, but I am also travelling with Princess and they want new marriage cert! childrens passport! and a letter from my ex! Have got him to sign just a brief letter stating it is ok for them to travel with me. I wonder if he was taking them if all this would be required, I think not.
I just got off the Triumph last month, I had my 16 year old son with me. I have remarried and have a different last name than him. They never questioned anything about it. She did look at his birth certificate and then at mine and I guess that since she saw that my first and middle names were the same on both documents that it was me. I had a notorized letter with me tho just in case. It simply stated that I had his dads permission to take him on the Triumph on the November 10th sailing.
I have also taken my stepsons on cruises and have never been questioned about it. have a great cruise.
