i need to apply for my daughter's passport. her bio father is on the birth certificate. i was unwed to her bio father in georgia. i was told i had sole custody because i was unwed. how can i obtain documentation from the court showing i have sole custody? i need this to satisfy the requirement for minor passport application
Because his name is on the birth certificate they require his consent. They are not taking my special circumstances statement. how can i get courts document stating i have sole custody that is given to me by right.
i m confused, based on the link provided above the forms for custody are for superior court. i thought custody cases fall within juvenile court. why must i petition the count for something this is rightfully mine?
What "special circumstances" will be accepted on the ds-3053 form?
are there any examples of accepted special circumstances?
