    You are not without options here. Go to the Department of State website:

    http://travel.state.gov/passport/get/minors/minors_834.html

    You will have to fill out the Form DS-11 - Application for Passport. In addition, you have to fill out Form DS-3052. If you have sole legal custody, you can submit evidence of that and get the passport without the biological father's permission. If you do not have evidence of sole legal custody, you can still apply and submit Form DS-3053 stating why the biological father's consent cannot be obtained.

    Good luck!

    It isn't clear from your question whether you have received your COBRA Premium Subsidy Notice (which was due to be distributed by April 18, 2009), and whether or not your employer is still sponsoring a group health plan. But, since nobody seems willing to answer your questions, I would suggest that you go to the Department of Labor website for information regarding the COBRA premium subsidy (www.dol.gov). Search the term "COBRA", then, once you are on the COBRA page, scroll down and look for the link to FAQs for Employees. There is a phone number listed on that page so that you can speak to a DOL Benefits Advisor regarding the premium subsidy. They should be able to give you further guidance. Good luck.
