We have moved to a new home and my kids passport has expired. Should I need to submit address proof for my Kid or I can use my old address. I personally know the people staying in the old address.

Yes. That said, the address proof can be that of the parents address proof. The passports of the parents would just be fine as long as you are residing in the same house when you took the last passport.

If you had moved to a different house, then you need to submit one of the 12 address proofs of the parents/guardian.

As of the year 2017, below are the acceptable address proofs.
