OPTION OF LEGAL ACTION RE ISSUE/RENEWAL OF PASSPORT

In the face of opposition by one parent to the issue or renewal of a child's Israeli passport, the other parent can bring a legal action at the Family Court.

After hearing the reaction of the objecting parent and the Ministry of the Interior, the court can decide whether opposition to the issue/renewal of the passport is justified or not. If it is not, the court can order the Ministry of Interior to issue/renew the minor's passport.
