Attorney Wayne :

Another option is to ask a family court judge to grant sole custody to the parent not in jail until such time as the incarcerated parent is released. This is useful in a number of contexts -- not just for passports. If the father is still involved in the family, he or she often goes along with it since its not a permanent removal of parental rights, but a temporary fix those specific issues arising from incarceration. This would allow the custodial parent to apply for the passport submitting a copy of the court order for custody with the passport application, without the extra step of completing the form DS 3053 (exemption for special circumstances).

Attorney Wayne :

Finally, if the incarcerated parent is willing, and the prison has a system for doing so, he or she can execute a notarized form (DS-503) allowing the other parent to apply for the passport without the incarcerated parent present.
