Q: Can I Ask The Judge To Approve A Passport For My 4 Year Old Child ?

  • By: David Bliven, Esq.
  • Published: January 28, 2020

Q: I have physical custody/joint with dad. My court order states that for vacations or travel I only have to provide the father with address phone and the date I leave and date of return but he denies me the passport. What can I do? Is that a Violation of court order or do I have to file to the court?

A: It’s not a violation unless the court order provides that he’s also to cooperate with renewal of the passport. Assuming it doesn’t, you’d need to file a modification petition requesting that provision, or a court order allowing you to get the passport without his signature. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Family Law attorney for a full assessment.
