I asked that very same question - why the BC when it is a renewal? I was told that the custody thing was part of it and that the BC had info on it on who the real dad is, thus identifying who should present identification to allow the passport to be issued. Doesn't really address why a renewal would be subject to this, given that the original dad has already been identified, except thatwith the divorce rate and custody battles, they think it is a way to prevent a parent from taking the kids out of the country that might have previously approved a passport, during happier times , but that now has a problem with it.
