If you have joint custody
If an application for modification of custody or residence has been submitted to the Agency of Family Law, and the parents have joint custody, neither parent is allowed to leave Denmark with the child. However, the following exceptions apply:
If you have sole custody
If you have sole custody, you are allowed to go abroad on holiday with your child even if the other parent objects to it. The reason is that the person having custody is entitled to determine where and in which country the child is to reside.
If you do not have custody
If you do not have custody, you are not allowed to take the child with you abroad. However, the following exceptions apply:
- The other parent has given his or her consent
- The Agency of Family Law/State Administration has decided that you are allowed to take your child abroad with you in connection with access
- The court has issued a judgment allowing you to take your child abroad with you in connection with access.
