Is it possible for a parent to revoke their consent for the travel and/or stay of minor children outside the country if the parents are still married, not legally separated, and no custody has been established?

In those circumstances, the parent traveling doesn't NEED the permission of the other parent so revocation is moot. Either parent is free to travel with the child.

In the US, when parents are married, if one parent is travelling with the minor children and the other is not present, the travelling parent must have a notarized letter from the parent not travelling granting consent for the travel. This is to prevent child abductions. I know this to be the case because I have gone through it recently. I have since found out that in countries covered by the Hague Convention, that this consent may be revoked under certain circumstances and the children returned. My circumstances may qualify for this as I understand it, but I'll probably need to consult a lawyer. Thanks.

Thanks but I live in the US and have all my life and neither me nor my husband have ever needed consent from the other in order to travel alone with our child. Neither has he needed consent to travel with his daughter from a previous marriage. Furthermore, *I* have never needed consent (in writing) to travel with his daughter. As previously stated, either parent is free to travel with the child.

In my case, this is travel with an extended stay in a foreign country that is not a US held territory, and one covered under the Hague Convention. While I appreciate that this hasn't been the case for you in your previous experience, in my case, which was last fall, it was indeed required for their travel.

My x and his wife went on a cruise in Jan with 2 of our kids and the cruiseline required a form filled out by me giving permission for them to travel with out me.

Things have changed a great deal in the past few years. Especially where international travel is involved.
