Thought I would post an update and try to answer the questions.
minute: The state is South Carolina, and my attorney legally represented me in court during the divorce.
UPDATE: I went to apply and needed a true copy of the order, not just a photocopy, so I ordered that copy and received it this week.
We just left the passport office and they took the documentation and were also not sure if it would go through or not, so we submitted it. The sheer mention of < parenting time > could stop the processing of the passport, and we may need the mothers consent.
So we have submitted the paperwork and left a message for my attorney, hoping to hear back on Monday with how to proceed. If the processing of the passport ends up requiring her consent it is going to be difficult to find her and if we do, I highly doubt she will sign. So I am assuming that we will have to get the court to order her to sign it.
A few questions I have:
If we have to go through the courts to get this signed, what is the usual turn around time for a matter like this?
If they order her to sign but can not reach her, will the judge just rule it as not needed or will we have to amend the order to remove the mention of < parenting time >?
