I need to apply for my sons first passport. His father who I am not married to or have never been married to is being difficult. He is refusing to give me his passport details for the application form and has said that he is going to apply for the childs passport so that it prevents me from obtaining it. Is it a case of who applies first as to who gets the passport.
Hi, the child is not quite 2 yet. Yes the father is named on the birth certificate
Hi, the child is nearly 2 years old and the father is named on the birth certificate.
taking the child on a 1 week cruise to Norway. The father is aware and has not refused but he is being difficult as always tries to make anything difficult for me. He knows I am applying for his passport. infact I have a appointment with the passport office on Friday. He has just said that he is going to apply for his passport and my worry is that if he applies before me he will get the passport preventing me from taking my son on holiday.
Thank you for your answer, I understand that as I don not rely on his nationality I do not have to give the information but what I do need to clarifying is, can the father apply for our sons passport without my consent. Does he have the same parental rights as me even though he does not live him or that he does not provide for him in any financial way.
Is it a case of who ever applies for the passport first gets it ?
