I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

So long as there are not outstanding charges your son will be able to get a passport.

But that doesn't mean he will be able to travel to the US or elsewhere.

Each country has their own policies about who is admissible. The US and Canada share information so they will know about his criminal record.

Does that fully answer your question?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
