If you are proposing to travel on holiday with a child, do remember to check that you have the required permission (in writing) from either the other parent/person(s) with parental responsibility or the court. This is often overlooked (by grandparents, as well as by others). If you do not have permission you could be stopped/prevented from travelling and possibly deemed to have ‘abducted' the child(ren). Child abduction is a criminal offence, defined as the unlawful removal or retention of a child under 16 without lawful excuse. The definition is found in the Child Abduction Act 1984.
