I suggest going as you likely have one shot at getting this sorted. I've had lots of conflicting info from the passport office regarding supplementary info. They all say different things! I think being unmarried in addition to no uk passport may complicate it and if you need it quickly, I'd turn up with everything!
Thanks. He could have signed section 9 and i wouldn't have to write a letter at all. On the phone they said it had to be the mother because we weren't married. I already have it countersigned and have no time to get a new application so i'll write a letter saying:
I Bluearya authorize DP to submit the passport application for our DS.
That should be enough?
There is no place for me to put my passport number because i'm not British.
did you and your DP jointly register the birth of your DS and is he on the birth certificate? If so he has parental responsibility the same as you. Your DP will need to take a completed application form and supporting documents with him plus countersigned photos of your DS. There will be spaces on the form for you to put in your passport number.
This is from the passport applications website:
If you cant go to your appointment or collect your passport, another person can do this for you (as long as youre in the UK at the time). They must bring:
* ID, eg their own passport, driving licence, or a utility bill issued within the last 3 months
*a signed and dated letter from you naming the person and giving them permission (if the application is for a child, the person who signed section 9 of the form must sign this permission letter)
