My ex has purchased a ticket for my son to visit him.

Customer Question
My ex has purchased...

My ex has purchased a ticket for my son to visit him. Usually he purchases and unaccompanied minor ticket where there is a attendant who is with my son for the entire trip. This time he booked him as an adult which means he would have to travel on his own like an adult on connecting flights both ways, internationally, through customs and everything (USA to Canada).My son is only 13 and has never done this before. I am not comfortable with this at all and just want to know if I have a right to say no.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Georgia

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

None

My son is only 13 and has never done this before. I am not comfortable with this at all and just want to know if I have a right to say no.

Response: Yes, you do. He cannot purchase ticket for him as an adult because he is not an adult. He needs to redo the ticket. Otherwise, your should not let your son travel on that ticket.

Best wishes,

A 5-star positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating. However, that is how I get paid for answering questions on this site.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
