Thats the whole reasoning about asking if I had to be on the household registration and i suppose I forgot to add i have to be recognized as the childs father in Taiwan, and how does one go about that? Is a US court order sufficient?
Now the more amazing thing today was the local USA police who worked in the child abduction unit told me to get the childs Taiwanese passport that was being held by the courts here and using that to take the child out of Taiwan. I told them i didnt think that would be to smart given the mother had reported that passport lost and now there was a man, claiming to be the father, removing the child from Taiwan with no recognition he is dad in Taiwan on a lost / stolen passport.
OP, you are not making yourself clear here. Firstly you said that your ex has invited you to Taiwan to come and collect your child. And here you say that, if asked, she is likely to deny that she has given you permission to remove your child from Taiwan.
Perhaps it went this way: she abducted your child to Taiwan despite a US court order giving you custody; you told her that you wanted your child back and she said "OK, you come here and collect him/her then". This is just a Taiwanese way of saying "no chance". I know because I have heard it before.
If this is the way she is, I would be surprised if she even let you see your child when you return to Taiwan, let alone take them out of the country.
You are not being too clear either about the Taiwanese passport that is being held by the courts in the USA. If they still have it, then she must have obtained another one from the TW Embassy in the USA. Which would be an incredible piece of incompetence on behalf of your justice system because the first thing that the courts should have done is to bind the TW Embassy not to release any travel documents for your child. So what happened there ?
And where did your ex report the Taiwanese passport lost ?
I am sorry, but a lot of things are not making sense here. You have anything else to tell us to make things clearer ?
