Need a bit of advise...

Ok, so my husband and I are separated right now. I need to get a new copy of my youngest son's ss card, but they told me that they needed to have both parents sign to issue a new ss card- here's my problem, my husband is not in the US, and cannot come back- he was deported in 2009. :(  How can I get the new ss card for my son then?

Also, I need to get his passport as well, he has never had one, and I need one for him before July... and yet again, my husband cannot even mail me a notarized letter giving permisison for me to obtain our son's passport without him present... 

Any suggestions or advise? TIA...

 I have never before heard of having to have both parents sign for a new one.  As for the passport I don't see why you would need both parents for that either.  You have physical custody, seems there would be some way that you could prove he was deported if the whole both parent thing is true.

No idea.  Sounds like it has to be incorrect that he needs to be present...  I mean, if he was deported and cannot come back, surely they can issue it without him.

I have never had to have both parents to sign, I think this is odd.

 definately call & talk to a supervisor or such.  i had to make a trip to the tag office three times last year, for no reason!!  the first two times i was given incorrect information about what i needed to change a title over & when i went in the third time i had a supervisor wait on me & i mentioned how i hoped i didn't have to come back a 4th time.  she asked why i had to come so much & when i told her she said i shouldn't have had to do that because all my information was in the computer correctly already.

if you talk to a supervisor & explain your situation you may get different answers.

not to be nosey, but why couldn't your husband send a letter if you needed it?  just curious.

See, I thougt it was odd as well... but here's another thing- I was looking on the passport page for requirments and it states that the children under 16 AND BOTH PARENTS HAVE to be present and need to submit the app IN PERSON... :( I'm not finding any other info yet...


As for the SS card thing, I am also now living in a different state, so does that make a difference?

he's plain lazy for one, but also where he is living it's really expensive for notarizing letters, AND he claims he doesn't have time or the money to get that done- and he would just spend the money on something else if I tried to send him some for that. >_<
