My husband and I are separated
by: Anonymous

Question: My husband and I are separated. We have a 5-year-old daughter. He lives in a different state and I am trying to get a passport for my daughter. The problem is I don't know what state he lives in and I don't know where he is. How do I apply for a passport for my daughter?

Answer: If the father's name is on the birth certificate, his consent is required to apply for your child's passport. It's now easier to track someone down through social media so you can probably start there.

Once you have exhausted all means to contact the father to no avail, you may submit Form DS-5525 along with proof of your failed attempts. Applications of this nature are processed on a case by case basis and there is a chance that it will be rejected.
