How do I renew a child's expired passport?
Question: How do I renew a child's passport which expired a year ago? (We are a military family and had them issued on a military installation.)
A passport for a minor can be obtained by submitting Form DS-11
at a passport application acceptance facility. Acceptance facilities are usually found in local post offices, county clerk's offices or public libraries.
Along with the application form, you must submit proof of U.S. citizenship, proof of relationship to the child, personal identification, a photocopy of your identification document and one passport photo.
Both parents must appear with the minor. If only one parent can appear, then the applying parent must submit either a notarized consent form from the non-applying parent or evidence of sole legal custody.
For a child's passport book, the application fee is $80 and the execution fee is $25. Expedited service is an additional $60.
