Just that really

Nope.
If you have residency you don't need permission.

My experience is no BUT you can only take DC out of the country for 28 days or less.

Obviously ignore all of that if you have restrictions placed on you by a court. My ex tried to have me done for kidnap; got stopped at the airport by armed police with my 3 month old DD 🙄

We don't have a residency order and neither myself or ex have ever been stopped going abroad/coming home regarding our dc.

Check the Foreign Office advice for the country you're going to. South Africa, for example, requires permission from the NRP .

mustbemad Wow-That was some welcome home!

Oh no Corlan this was on the way out 😂 Was taking her to see my folks in Germany but because me & him were at loggerheads he wasn't invited. Thankfully it only took a short time to get it straightened out & we then got escorted to our gate 😬

If you have a court order stating you have residency no you don't for less than 28 days away.
If you have an agreement between you that has not involved court then yes you should have permission.

Some of the advice on this thread is wrong or incomplete. Lonecatwithkitten is right. If you have a court order stating that the child lives with you, you can take the child out of the country for up to 28 days.

If you do not have a court order and the NRP has PR you need their consent to take the child out of the country otherwise you are committing a criminal offence. Having said that, it is highly unlikely you would be prosecuted for taking the child out of the country for a short time. Many people go abroad without the necessary consent. However, some find that they are refused entry at their destination because they can't show that they have the consent of the other parent.

Prh47bridge is correct as usual.

Is there a contact order in NRP's favour? If so, you can't take the kids away without consent if it would impinge on ordered contact, even with a live with order in your favour.
