For children under the age of 16, the two-parent consent law requires proof of relationship with parents. This is established through the Certified Birth Certificate.

  • All applicants must be present during application process.
  • Both parents must be present for applicants under the age of 16. If one parent cannot be present, that parent must fill out a Parent Consent Form (DS-3053) and have their signature notarized.
  • Must provide Proof of Citizenship (Certified Birth Certificate issued by the State or County - abstract certificates are not acceptable, Prior Passport, or Naturalization Certificate).
