U.S. Passport Applications for Children Under Age 16
Both parents or legal guardian must sign the application for children under sixteen (effective February 1, 2008). They must:
- Present evidence of the child's U.S. citizenship
- Present evidence that they are the parents or guardian
- Show valid personal identification
- Sign and take an oath before an authorized passport acceptance agent
If the second parent is not available to sign, the appearing parent must do everything listed in the above paragraph and present evidence that he or she has sole legal custody of the child or written consent of the other parent for the issuance of the passport or a written statement explaining why the non-applying parent's consent cannot be obtained.
If no parent is available to sign, the third-party in loco parentis must appear with a notarized written statement or affidavit from both parents or the custodial parent authorizing the third-party to apply for a passport. When the statement or affidavit is from only one parent, the third-party must present evidence of sole custody of the authorizing parent.
