Taking a child into Turkey that isnt biologically yours

Hello,
was reading the thread on divorced parents and the problems that not having permission from the birth father has caused.
I have a slightly different problem, in that Im a kinship carer ( I have full parental responsiblity of my grandson and he has lived with me now for two years ) and Im planning on moving over to Turkey to live this year.
The birth father isnt on the birth certificate and has no access or contact with the child.
Does anyone know if I will need anything other than my full parental responsibilty paper work to prove he is in my custody. I would beable to get a letter from his birth mother given permision to take him out the country, but know I couldnt and wouldnt beable to get this from the missing birth father.
I am married to a Turkish man but he wont be with me when I go over due to work commitments in the UK and the idea is for me to go over first and set up our home, so wont be there to help me with amy of this other than via a phone.
Any help or advice would be great.

Tracey

Re: Taking a child into Turkey that isnt biologically yours

Hi Tracey
Sorry i dont know the answer but if i was you id call the turkish embassy in London and ask them.
Im not 100% sure but i think you will need to send your parental rights paperwork to the embassy for them to stamp to confirm the documents are all legal
Sorry i cant help anymore

Re: Taking a child into Turkey that isnt biologically yours

What is the childs surname? if its the same as yours no-one will question you. when I brought a relatives child over to Turkey from Cyprus I had to have a document from a solicitor signed by the parents giving me permission.

Re: Taking a child into Turkey that isnt biologically yours

I think you need the Turkish consulate, they deal with visas and validate documents. We went there to get documents validated. Check before you visit the validation has a time limit normally 3 months. But you can ask them questions.

Re: Taking a child into Turkey that isnt biologically yours

Would it be enough just to have an Affidavit from the childs birth mother, giving you permission to take him out of your country?

I note that you are the grandparent.

I've never had the slightest problem (as a lone parent) taking my children in or out of Turkey. Only once a problem at an English port of entry; trying to re-enter England.

I'd take Howell's and Tosmurs advice and ask at the London Turkish Consulate if your parental responsibility paperwork is sufficient. You will need to 'phone to get an appointment.

Best of luck.

Re: Taking a child into Turkey that isnt biologically yours

flown cork to bodrum with my son, no problems on arrival, even though i have british passport son has irish. no questions asked. dont think you will have any problems unless a passport comes up at entry, as having had previous problems or alerted by police etc
i was arrested by interpol and sent home, but that was a diferent story!!!

They would be fine if they was just holidaying here and didnt need to stay over the 30 days.
The problems will arrise when they go for residency

Re: Taking a child into Turkey that isnt biologically yours

hi
my details are exactly the same as yours my daughter is a single mother who lives in cyprus and no father on birth certificate. Unfortunately it was too expensive for her with sitters etc whilst she tried to work. So 2 years ago my grandson came to live with my self and my Turkish husband.

All i did was take the letter of daughters consent to translation office, into turkish then this to be taken to the notars office to be stamped and witnessed of your signature. Your daughter also needs to ensure that this is also signed at the same time. As in our case my daughter go this translated in Cyprus she signed it and then we took it to be countersigned at the Notars office.

Please make sure that it states that your name in full and your passport number (and your husbands name) if you want is on the document along with your daughters full name and passport. Also your grandchild full details. Stating that you are fully responsible for them.

Once you have this document you need to go to the foreign office (polis) and do his residency as normal. You will only have to pay for the residency book. They will need a translated birth certificate and this notarised paper.

If he/she is of school age i can give you more information just pm me. Or if you need further help.
