Thank you for using JustAnswer.

It's not necessarily a disqualification, but may be. Certain things are automatic (such as felony drug convictions, unpaid child support, a minor without consent of a parent). But other things are where "it depends".

If the State Department decides that you are a real threat to national security or U.S. policy, you may be denied a passport. You will also be disqualified if you have been ruled legally incompetent, are subject to felony arrest or have been forbidden -- by court order, parole or probation -- from leaving the country. Also, your passport can be revoked -- and subsequent applications denied -- if you are found to have obtained a passport through fraudulent means or to have altered a passport. In 2012, legislation was introduced that could revoke or deny passports to people who owe money to the Internal Revenue Service.

So an individual still could have been ruled legally incompetent due to insanity, or barred by court order from leaving the country, and that would act as a disqualification. But assuming that none of these are in place, then the person could get a passport.
