I was born in the United States and my mother moved me to

Customer Question

I was born in the United States and my mother moved me to her place of birth, Colombia. My grandmother raised me as my mother abandoned me. My grandmother changed my name and I lived in Colombia until I was 21. I've been going back and forth with The social security administration for over a year now and I'm no closer in getting my social security card, I've provided all documentation to prove my birth and name change. I don't know what to do and my attorney doesn't seem to be able to help me achieve this. I NEED HELP
