Generally speaking, the courts frown on parents who block travel, unless there is a legitimate reason for doing so. For example, a trip to a war-torn country may be refused. So, if you cannot get the consent signed, you could go to court and get a court order that she do so. Your best next step is to set up a consultation with one our lawyers who can discuss the process and your options.
