Custody Issues, can I travel?

Well I don't really have issues, I have temporary sole custody of my son. We're flying down to California next month for vacation (just one week). Will I need to take something with me to the airport that says I have custody? Someone told me I would need to. Does anyone know for sure?

  • kids dont need id or any proof that the person they are with is a parent or anything. i flew a few times with ds and i look like i am maybe 15 at the oldest... no one even checked with me to seeif he was my son or anything, i had his bc all ready just incase!!! its stupid that they dont check!

  • I would call the courts or police dept., just to be safe. Have a safe flight & have fun on your vacation!

  • Thanks for the bump! I've been trying the airlines websites. Alaska airlines says I don't, United just says children don't need identification. I'm kind of confused.
