When it comes to getting a passport for a child, many questions come up. The most commonly asked question is the age that a child is considered an adult. People ages 16 years and older require an adult passport, while those under 16 years of age require a child passport. Another common passport question involves a child being too young to sign his or her own passport. If this is the case, the mother or father should print the child’s name, but sign their own name. (The parent should also write the word (mother) or (father) in parenthesis so that the US Dept of State officials are aware of who signed the passport.
Another common child passport question: Is it necessary for both parents or legal guardians to give consent for a child passport? As of February 1, 2008, the law requires that US passport applications for minors require both parents’ or legal guardians’ consent. There are some circumstances in which this can be modified, such as if both parents are not around, or if there is a custody battle. In additon, the Child’s Passport Issuance Alert Program (CPIAP) notifies parents of passport applications made on behalf of minor children.
