Why do you need your marriage license, are you not a citizen? I got my enhanced license last year. I did not need my marriage license. If I were you I would just get a passport.

Putting this out there for posterity:

There are services out there that can get you a passport in a matter of days....even next day if necessary. I used this company when we needed a passport for my then infant daughter on short-notice.

In case anybody is wondering how this is possible: it was explained to me that these services have arranged standing appoints with a local passport issuing agency, and the services determine what passport applications they bring to those appointments.

There is a cruise ship adrift right now in the Gulf of Mexico due to an engine fire. It's being towed to Mexico and the passengers flown home from there. The ones without passports will get home, but they certainly will be more delayed than the ones with them.

I need the marriage license because of my name change.

Which I did end up finding! But now I am kind of torn if I should get the enhanced license or the passport card, seems to me they both work the same, I can travel by land or sea but not fly with both of them.

Yup, it's possible to get one fast if you really need it. I didn't use a service and was able to get a renewed passport in roughly four hours.

I showed up at the airport for a school trip not realizing my passport had expired (stupid!!). We had to have one of my state congressmen call the nearest passport agency to get me an appointment for the next day. I had proof of travel for that afternoon (I got rebooked on the same flights that I was supposed to have been on) and I had my passport in hand by noon that day. That was definitely crazy fast, though - when the security guard gave it to me, he commented on how he didn't know how I got it so fast.

Agree with others...skip the passcard and get a passport. Never know when it might come in handy in the next 10 years!

I personally would just get EDL, it's cheaper, services same things as card far as I know. My dad and his wife have EDL( why I'm trying to fig out but that's another thread).

Get a passport! If you have a problem of any sort you will not be able to fly home if needed with just a birth certificate or passport card. Well worth the cost.

Also are both parents traveling with the child? If not there is an additional form you have to get filled out and signed by the parent that is not traveling.
