We haven't seen my sons father for almost 2 years no known way to contact him. How do I go about getting a passport for my son?

Well, contact the passport office, they would provide you the necessary info.

Is there anything in the custody order stating he needs permission to leave the country? If not, u may be good to get him one w out the dads signature!

There is no custody order we weren't married when he was born. My attorney recommended because I had full custody to let him file. He didn't care still doesn't.

I think it's easier if bd isn't on the bc, but the passport application does have some standard answers on the application sheet regarding minor children. Even if you had to get his consent (if you can find him), do you think he would object?

Ask your attorney or the passport office.

Yep. When no father is on the BC, whatever the mom says go under the U.S. law.

You have to have his permission or get a judge to give you permission or a special circumstances form.

I lucked out and got my sons passport before his dad was added to the bc so I didn't need his permission, just a form that said I couldn't find him to get his permssion. The passport information online lists what all you need.
