Customer Question
Ex is in arrears for...
Ex is in arrears for 70k in child support.
He has a legal US passport, and can be denied renewal, however as his is still VALID for many years and I am afraid he will fee, is there any way to REVOKE the current passport as he is a flight risk? There is no information on the net about this, only about non renewal
