Is there ANY possible way you can get a passport without the consent of the other parent of a minor child?



I want to get Lily's passport... but this may be tricky...

Hmmm maybe there is a way to petition the court if he has nothing to do with her? I dunno I'm just taking a shot in the dark.

I had to send in a signed official paper to a consult saying that I didn't have contact and didn't know how to get in contact with him. Then my case had to be reviewed and signed on, then the paperwork from that sent back. Then I had to file all that with the passport paperwork and one was finally issued to us.

Untrue, I went to japan with my daughter for 3 years on a passport her biological father didn't sign in spite of the fact he is on her birth certificate.

If you read the passport website, that's what it says.

Because him being notified of anything about her would put her in jeopardy.




I have NO idea where he is, we haven't talked in nearly 8 years. He doesn't support Lily at all, but he is on the birth certificate. We did legally change her last name from his to mine without his consent though.

If you can change her last name without him knowing then I would assume that you can do a passport too.

Yes, if you only look at one part of it. It states very clearly what 1 parent must present for consent to be granted had you actually looked. If you don't actually know the answer or aren't willing to look up the procedure then don't reply as though you know what you are talking about. What do you think they do in the case of an absent parent? Refuse to grant a passport until the minor is 18?

I've looked up the procedure and my children have passports,

Huh, that's what they told me. But I was lucky, he wasn't on the bc at first anyway

You don't need him. If he has been absent that long it would be easy to get her one. Go to the passport office, they will give you the forms you need but you will need to get an official statement signed by a county clerk stating that you have no contact and he has been an absent parent for X amount of years. I don't remember the exact form but they should be able to tell you. After it was submitted it took about 3 weeks for it to be cleared and another week to get her passport.
