You should be able to get without him. I think as long as you have your son's birth certificate and social security card you should be good. Haven't had a need to get one for DD and I got mine after turning 18.

Since theres no court order preventing you taking her, just get an application from the courthouse, fill it out, get your birth cert, immunization records and beautiful pics taken, turn it back in and wait. Usually not a huge deal.

If he is on BC you need his permission or a court order gratin full custody. You are stuck if he is on BC but no court order.

When I got my son a passport  it required that both parents be present or a notaries sheet that they provide to be filled out by the absentee parent, if your sons fathers are on the BC you will have to find out additional paperwork , so go to he post office and ask for that paperwork and your attorney can help you get the necessary proof to show you don't need your son's father to get them a passport.

You need to have a form filled out from the U.S. Dept. of State signed by the father or the father has to be present, unless you have a CO giving you sole legal custody.
