Hello Sherenne. What is mother's objection to the child attending the wedding?
When is the wedding?
What is mother's objection to the child going?
Who has custody of the child? Is there a court order or something in place?
How old is the child, what grade in school?
Missing a week of grade two isn't the end of the world. Mother clearly doesn't want the child to go.
So if mother won't agree then father has to take her to court for permission to travel with the child. If he wants joint custody, now is the time to ask for it too.
If father has a lawyer, even better. He'll need to bring a motion to change a final order, plus a motion for a temporary order allowing the wedding trip.
Is there anything else you'd like to discuss about this topic?
If the mother won't agree, then the court will make an order when his motion is heard. If the parents can agree on something then it'll be on consent.
I can't tell you what a lawyer would charge. It depends on the lawyer and how much time this takes. Perhaps just getting the lawyers office to do the paperwork would be enough, it depends on how much money you are willing to spend on this.
Is there anything else about this topic that you'd like to talk to me about?
It's possible that there are some filing fees, depending on which level of court you go to. You have to go to the same court level which made the order you're trying to change. So if the order involves a divorce or property division then it would have been made in the higher court and there might be some filing fees.
You want to get this done right the first time, so whether you hire a lawyer to represent you, or just get a lawyer's office to do the paperwork for you, they'll give you those details.
