Passport for the litte one

I apologize if this is in the wrong place here on the forum! Wasn't sure where to ask. I received confirmation that my foreign born daughter (She is a US citizen through me, we are getting the passport as proof) can apply for her passport while we are in the us. Her father is Norwegian and will be staying in Norway until we start his immigration process. To get her passport Im assuming we need him to fill out the consent forms and have them notarized in Norway and sent back. Is this correct or can I do this without his consent? It's not a problem if we need to of course :) Also one confusing thing for me is that a passport seems to require a SSN but to get a SSN, you need the passport to prove citizenship. Can I apply for the passport without a SSN for her? All the other needed documents to prove her citizenship through me (a born USC)are ready.

(Please don't ask/criticize me about CRBA :P I didnt do it and now its complicated! That's what I get. I know. But it's being worked out! :) )

Yes, you need to submit the statement of consent, DS-3053 from the dad: http://travel.state.gov/passport/forms/ds3053/ds3053_846.html. Also make sure you follow the passport application's instructions on how to establish the child's identity and citizenship.

I can't find any information about applying for passport without the SSN. I assume that it's possible, because embassies overseas regularly accept applications for CRBAs, passports and SSNs all at the same time. I would go apply for the passport and leave SSN blank, and explain to the officer that you need proof of citizenship so you can apply for the SSN. There is a slight chance they might ask you to go to the social security office and request a letter denying your application (which the social security offices can issue), but I would start with the passport office first.

By the way, how did your daughter get into the U.S. without the passport? On a Norwegian passport? Be aware that U.S. citizens are required to travel to the U.S. using U.S. passports, so you need to keep that in mind as you travel between the countries.

If you have his CRBA done you can apply to his passport and SSN, when we went to do my son's CRBA they do it along with his passport, SSN had to be done later with his CRBA in hand. And yes you must present the father's consent.
