My wife needs to get her passport renewed. He passport anyways expires in August 2020 and she wants to get the name changed on her passport as she currently has the before marriage name. She will also be changing signature.
I have few questions on this...

1. I checked document advisor and it says she needs her current passport photo copy and spouse self attested passport photo copy. Is anything else required? Ofcourse I will give the marriage certificate, my original passport (which has her after marriage name written in spouse name).

2. Do I need to go with her to PSK? I cannot so I intend to send her alone to get eveything done.


Now another situation, I need to get my son's passport made.

1. He is 8 months old so I guess I have to take his picture and take right?

2. He will be getting his Aadhar in few days (already applied), so apart from that we intend to take my passport, his birth certificate as additional documents. Is that all ok?

3. Do I need to wait for my wife's passport renewal to be done and renewed passport received for my son's passport to be applied? Or I can do it in parallel. I want my wife's after marriage name in my son's passport.

4. Can my wife alone go with my son for the passport? Or I need to go? Also is my son even needed for the passport application or we can keep him home and my wife can get it done alone?

5. If i can get both their applications (wife's passport renewal and son's fresh application) done together, how to have their appointments together?

You cannot. Accompanying person is allowed only for senior citizens, disabled, minor, etc. But you have to go anyway for your child's passport. Read my reply below.

Yes.
He will be getting his Aadhar in few days (already applied), so apart from that we intend to take my passport, his birth certificate as additional documents. Is that all ok?
An affidavit from the parents. It's called Annexure D. Link here ==> https://portal2.passportindia.gov.in/AppOnlineProject/pdf/AnnexureD.pdf
You can take a print out on a plain paper and sign it and submit. It is not required on stamp paper.
Or I can do it in parallel.
.
You may do it in parallel. AFAIK, the names are printed as per what you fill in the application form. From what I read somewhere, if the names in the birth certificate of the child are correct, then there should be no issue at all.
Can my wife alone go with my son for the passport? Or I need to go?
Both parents need to be present. If in case you cannot really make it for whatever reason, you need to fill Annexure C instead of the aforementioned Annexure D. This annx. C is used when one parent has given consent. There is an option in this form to mention that the other parent is traveling and not able to give consent. However, I would suggest you simplify the process by being present. This way, you can accompany your wife and child, and reduce the stress on your wife. ;)
Also is my son even needed for the passport application
Absolutely. Biometrics or photograph won't be taken for the child, but the child has to be physically present.
If i can get both their applications (wife's passport renewal and son's fresh application) done together, how to have their appointments together?
Minor passports don't need prior appointment. SO book an appointment for your wife, and get both of their work done in the same slot.

Thank you so much for detailed replies. Really appreciate it. I started a new job so I don't really want to take a leave for now. May be I will wait for couple of months to get this done.

I am always confused by this so asking again. Need to renew my wife's passport with name change as well and it asks this on the main page where all details are to be given.

Is applicant eligible for Non-ECR category?*

By default YES is selected but I am not sure if I should select Yes or No. Because Selecting Yes may require additional documents.

Anyone who has passed Matriculation exam is eligible for non ecr category. You just need Matriculation or higher sec or a degree certificate. That's it.

Does anyone know if PSKs are open on Saturdays for appointment? I am guessing answer is No. I am looking for Malad PSK in Mumbai.
