Consent from the other parent - DCF London

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi my husband is a US citizen and has been here for 6 months now. I have two kids from a previous relationship. One has his fathers last name and the other one don’t. So basically, I only have to ask for a consent for my one son. I have spoken to the biological father and he is willing to give me a letter of consent. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I don’t think we can apply this year. It will have to be beginning of next year. Now my question is, the letter of consent is dated this month. When we send our application next year it, the letter will be a year old. Can I still use the letter even though it will be a year old? Will it be a problem? 

 

Many thanks.

Even if your one son doesnt have his father's last name you may still need sole custody and/or acknowledgement from the father that the child is immigrating.  

 

It would be preferable if the letter was closer to the time you move but I'm not sure if there is a time limitation.

Hey many thanks for your thought in this. I have consulted a solicitor and advised that I do not need anything for my other son from him as he is not in the birth certificate. Apparently, the embassy would not ask for it as I have a sole custody of him.

~~Moved the the Regional forum, form DCF - as the main question is about consent to allow a child to move to the US. Laws differ from country to country in this regard.~~

In the past, people have had the consent letter witnessed/signed  by a solicitor. Notaries are hard to find in the UK,  so solicitors are used. I don't really know if a witness is still needed. Nobody has mention experiences with kids lately.
