Passport applications are denied when a parent owes more than $2500.00 in child or spousal support. Once the denial is in place, the entire amount due must be paid before the denial is lifted and the passport issued. Exceptions may apply. If a parent already has a passport, there is no way to revoke it. If an existing passport is lost, stolen, or needs to be renewed, the passport is denied until the past-due amount is paid.
