Leslie Spoltore, a partner in our family law group and based out Wilmington, Delaware recently posted a blog entry on the Child Passport Issuance Alert Program (“CPIAP”). This program allows a parent to file an objection with the State Department to the issuance of a passport to their child. In effect, it provides parents an early warning if the other parent tries to have a passport issued for their child without their knowledge.

Please read Leslie’s blog. She also provides a link to the U.S. State Department’s webpage where parents can find more information or download an Entry Request Form.
