children traveling out of the country w the other parent
I'm faced with my ex wanting to take our son, who is 8 to Costa Rica this summer to visit his mother. I'm very apprehensive about this. my ex has lived in Costa Rica and knows the language and culture. my former mother in law, well is a little whacky and she is apparently paying for the trip and according to my ex, has a trip of a lifetime planned. while I think it's a great opportunity for my son, it scares me to death. my ex went there on vacation several years ago and didn't return when he was supposed to. my ex keeps bringing up the issue and I have told him that I need time to digest it. he knows my fear is that he will kidnap him and he spent, and I know in my heart he won't but I'm still worried about my son being THAT far away from me. Any advice???
