Our family is planning a trip to Toronto this upcoming weekend. We have a few problems. |
Last night, on the Amtrak site, it was said that everyone needed a passport or birth certificate to cross the border. My husband, who is usually the clause to the rules is probably the one who is most likely to cross without problems.
I do not have a birth certificate, and the state of Kentucky will take 6 weeks to mail a duplicate. I do however, have a registration certificate that proves that the state of Kentucky did file this, and that I was indeed born and do exist.
The worse problem is my daughter. She is not my husband's biological child, and Amtrak also stated that both PARENTS had to be with her or that there had to be a written agreement that the other parent signed claiming that she could travel? WTF! She has not seen her biological father since 18 months (she is nearly 5 now). The lady working for Amtrak said this wouldn't be a problem, but...
If people at customs don't ask for her birth certificate, we may be fine. Aargh.
What do you think?
