We got ours in 2015 and 2020 at the Forsyth County Probate Court. 100 W Courthouse Square, Cumming, GA Suite 0088 in 2018. Call 770-781-2140 to make an appointment. Normally, they are Monday through Friday 8:30-3:20.
We got one for my son in 2023 at 90 North Street, Canton, GA 30114. This one is walk in from 8:30-4:30.
Please note, you do go through a metal detector to get into both locations.
Make sure you have a check or cashier check. My sons on Feb 1, 2023 was $194.50 for card and book with a check and I paid $60 cash or charge card to expedite it.
Adults can renew expired ones online, but all children have to renew in person.
We renewed our sons and he needed the online form https://eforms.state.gov/Forms/ds11.pdf passport pictures (we used Costco), birth certificate, we did a waiver since my husband could not come with us due to work.
We had the waiver form, copy of his dads ID and had it notarized as his father could not come with us that day.
Both parents need to go and so does the child. If one parent can not go they have a waiver that can be filled out before hand. You get the birth certificate back a week later than the passport in the mail.
They do not need your old passport, but I had brought it encase. They took it both times and will mail them back.
This is the site I used to get forms and all the information I needed.
