Question: If my former husband is not my daughter's father but his name is on her birth certificate, could her biological father and I come to the office to get her passport?

Answer: There person listed as the father on your daughter's birth certificate must either appear with her at the time the passport application is submitted or provide notizarized consent. The only way she can get the passport with her biological father is if you petition to have the birth certificate amended to include his name. You will also have problems listing the biological father on the application form if the birth certificate has a different name for the father.
