Question: what forms do I need, to file a petition that would allow me to travel abroad with my son?
Answer: A publication by the Department of Homeland Security outlines what documents you will need when traveling out of the country with a minor. Both the adult and the minor will need to have a valid U.S. Passport or Trusted Traveler Program Document for U.S. entry.
•If you are escorting a minor child without the parents, have a letter from both parents indicating that you have permission to travel with the minor.
•If the child is accompanied by only one parent, the parent should have a note from the child's other parent. For example, "I acknowledge that my wife/ husband is traveling out of the country with my son/ daughter. He/She/ has my permission to do so." •If a single parent has sole custody, a copy of the court custody document can replace a letter from the other parent.
