Default Non-custodial parental permission form

Does anyone have a link to or copy of a form for my ex-husband to sign to allow me t o take our daughter out of the country?

I have sole physical custody but we have joint legal custody.

Mahalo, (Thank you)

There is a web site called Forms for Parents that you can go to download whatever forms you need. Good idea to carry it with you -- I always did for years and was never asked for it. However, this summer I did need it and did not have it so they had to fax my husband for his approval.

Smooth sailing,

We just write up a letter that says - We have permission to take the children "list names" to travel on the cruiseship XXX between the dates XXX with anticipated stops at "list ports" and have the other sign it and get it notarized.

On over 1/2 dozen cruises between us, neither of us has ever been asked for the letter, but we have been told that it could be asked for and required, so better to have and not need than to be asked and have an issue.

Thanks for the input -- really helpful to other parents.

The only thing I suggest all also include is the health insurance carrier; ID #; and health insurance phone #.

Smooth sailing,
