That depends on a few things, and perhaps the most important is where you plan to go on vacation, with your spouse's ideas about this coming a very close second.

In almost every case, if your spouse agrees, you can do what you want.  And in most states, if your vacation isn't out-of-state, the courts will approve it anyway.

There are other things that can enter into this, too.  For advice you can rely on, based on all of the unique facts of your case, you need a lawyer's opinion.  One place to find an attorney, if you don't already have one, is our website, http://attorneypages.com


IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Answer(s) provided above are for general information only. The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
