Parents often travel overseas, and sometimes want to take their child with them. If parents are separated, they sometimes disagree on the issue of their child obtaining a passport. As the law stands, both parents who are holders of parental responsibilities and rights of guardianship should give consent for a minor child’s application for a passport. The child has a constitutional right to it. When parents cannot agree on the issue of consent, the law would have to come in.
