Is it not a felony to obtain Canadian passport for an baby born outside Canada, by the Canadian father (naturalized Indian) without the consent of the mother, who is an Indian citizen, when the couple had been separated and the baby had never been to Canada - and what recourse the mother has to file a complaint against the father? This is necessary, because the child's Indian passport in jeopardy as Government of India do not allow dual passports! The couple had been divorced now and The father is harassing the mother, who is working in UAE, living there with the son, who is an Indian passport holder now. They have filed a complaint with the Canadian Consulate there, couple of months ago, but hasn't received any response yet!
It's not a felony to apply for the passport.
But, if the father forged the mother's signature which is what he would have to do that is forgery and fraud.
But the way to deal with this is through the Consulate who will review the application and see what he did.
They will seek to have him charged if he committed an offence.
No it does not mean that.
You were asking about a criminal offence.
The mother can sue the father for acting without her permission and putting the child's citizenship at risk
And if the father did forge the mother's signature a lawyer in Canada could file a report with the police as well.
