When a child under the age of 18 is traveling outside the U.S. with only one parent or a third party there must be notarized written permission from the absent parent(s) or legal guardian. Without this authorization the parent/adult would not be allowed to legally take the child out of the U.S. If the joint custodial parent feels there is the possibility of the child being taken w/o their consent, they need to contact the authorities. The objecting parent must be able to show proof of their custody rights, preferably custody documents issued by the court.

It would not prevent the father filing a custody challenge.

How can you get a passport for a minor without parental consent?

Unless the parents are legally divorced and you are the 'custodial parent' you cannot. This is a Passport Office regulation which is in place to prevent one parent from removing the child from the country wihout the other parent's consent or knowledge. CAUTION: If the parents have joint custody, awarded by divorce or a child custody decree, check your paperwork carefully! You may find that your court decree forbids removing the child form the country (or in some cases, even the state), without the other parents consent.

Can a parent prevent the other parent from moving out of state when they have joint custody?

If the parent who wants to move is the parent with physical custody the move will be easier with the consent of the non-custodial parent. The court will seek their consent. If they do not consent then there will be a hearing. There are circumstances when the court will allow the move, however, there must be a very good reason. If allowed, the court will modify the visitation schedule to make certain the non-custodial parent will continue to enjoy as much time with the child as possible. On the other hand the court may decide that a change in physical custody is appropriate if the parent who wants to move far away is doing it for a new job that is not exactly necessary or for a new marriage. You should consult with an attorney who specializes in custody issues.

What to do if the child's mother threatens to leave the US without the fathers consent?

The father may file an emergency petition (called an ex parte) for custody in the court of jurisdiction over the child based on the same. A court may also require that the mother have supervised visitation only to prevent her from leaving the country with the child. And last but not least, a parent's threats to flee may be a factor in whether or not to make a custody modification. Parents really should not threaten each other in such a manner. It can have some unpleasant consequences.

If one parent who is under TPS inmigration and has full physical custody of a US citizen child and want to back to her country can the father's child who is US citizen take the child away from her?

As far as I am aware, no matter if she is under TPS, unless you have given consent for the child, seeing is if YOU are the biological parent, to leave the country or there are court documents stating the even that she is leaving to her home country then it is technically considered Kidnapping, from what I have been advised I would take further action regarding going to court to prevent such events as this and establishing it in front of the judge and courts.

If you have primary physical custody and joint legal custody can the noncustodial parent stop a child from moving overseas?

Yes, it IS possible they could prevent it. The court may agree that if the child were to be removed from the country (or even the state) that the non-custodial parent would be deprived of their parental rights, and the child would be prohibited from knowing the non-custodial parent.
