Passport Services 

Passport services are by appointment only. 

As a passport acceptance agency, we process applications for initial passports and minor renewals only. If you need an adult renewal, this is accomplished via the U.S. Mail. For processing times, click here.

If you have an emergency travel need (72 hours), click here for more information.
There is an additional U.S. Government fee to expedite your application.

Important Information
The federal government has extended the deadline for REAL ID to May 3, 2023. As of that date, standard state-issued driver’s licenses and identification cards will no longer be accepted to board domestic flights within the United States, or when entering certain federal facilities. For more information, click here.


  • If you need an initial passport or a minor renewal, contact us to schedule an appointment.  Please call 248-433-7702 or email the Clerk's Office
  • If you need an adult renewal, the Federal Government requires that you apply via mail. However, if you utilize us for your passport photo, or are renewing a minor’s passport with us, we are happy to provide advice concerning your adult renewal at that time
  • All applicants must apply in person.
  • For children ages 15 years old and younger, parents listed on the birth certificate must appear with the minor applicant. However, a Statement of Consent form may be completed by a parent unable to be at the appointment. The Statement of Consent form must be notarized and submitted (with photocopy of identification used for notary) with the applicant's paperwork.
  • Valid passports are required for children of every age.
  • Getting a photograph through our office? We recommend wearing a dark shirt or jacket. Light colors do not work well with our equipment.

To apply for a U.S. passport or passport card, applicants must provide:

  • A passport application form completed using black ink only. All forms may be found at the Department of State's passport website and at passport acceptance facilities.
  • Proof of U.S. citizenship in the form of a previous passport, passport card, certified birth certificate or certificate of naturalization.
  • Primary identification, which includes a current driver’s license, passport, certificate of naturalization (with photo), government or military ID. You must submit a front-and-back photocopy of your identification with the application.
  • Proof of relationship to parents required for applicants 15 years old and younger.  A birth certificate fulfills this requirement.
  • NOTE: Social Security cards are not considered a primary identification document by passport services. 

These lists are not all inclusive of what may be required to process a passport application.  Click on the link(s) below for full details.
