Hi thank you for your question. Please remember to RATE my answer OK SERVICE, GOOD SERVICE OR EXCELLENT SERVICE so I can get credited for my time.
Yes, this should be sufficient, if no other form of documentary evidence of the non- resident parent can not be obtained. The Applicant should also include the same from the resident parent stating that they has no objection to the non resident parent having an active involvement in the child's life.
I hope this answers your question, if so kindly rate my answer positively so I can get credited for my time.
I am a qualified solicitor and an expert in UK law
