My DH and I want to take our step son camping in Canada this summer. I read on a website that as he is under 16, all we need is his birth certificate. Bio mom said she had not problem with any of this and will give us the birth certificate for the trip, but she suggested we get one for ourselves in case this comes up in the future.
Tonight when my DH called, she said that she was told she also needed to write us a letter stating we had her permission to take their child into another country. She asked if we knew if the letter needed to be notarized or not. I told her that while it is nice of her to offer, and we will take it just in case, but I hadn't heard that. She asked me to verify if the letter needed to be notarized.
I mean really! I already told her I hadn't heard of that! But my DH wants me to see if I can find the answer. I mean, sometimes this woman really annoys me.
So, I looked online and some mention a letter, some sites do not. Does anyone know if 1) we actually NEED the letter this woman is insisting we need and 2) Does it need to be notarized.
