  • It has nothing to do with his last name whatsoever! It's called parental rights. If he is on the birth cert as his father, he has parental rights. If you leave the country without his permission it's considered parental kidnap. If you aren't together contact an attorney. But if he's fine with it then have a great trip!

  • Steff107 is right if he's on the birth certificate then u need his permission, I suggest getting it in writing if he's fighting u on it, gl
