Hi I am living in Bangkok with my daughter. I need to apply for a new passport for her and cannot locate the father for permission. I can't travel to SA for help because I can't get his written permission to travel in and out of SA with her. I was not married nor living with him during my pregnancy or after but his name is on her birth certificate (I made a mistake here and it has affected us for the past 7 years) he does not financially support her. Is there anyway I can get a lawyer to help me with a court order without me physically being in South Africa?
