Note: If the name of the parent/guardian is other than that on the document, evidence of legal name change is required.
Note: Although discourage, when only one parent or legal guardian is available to appear in person, the other parent or legal guardian may provide a notarized consent statement and photo copy of identification. Only original copies are accepted. This requirement is strictly enforced to protect children. Click here to download Consent Form 3053 (must be notarized).
