Do you have a sample letter that I can write to the judge? How long does it take for the initial court appearance and the proceedings? Would there be an ICE prosecutor present? Why do they need a passport, anyway?

Ok. Below is a sample motion:

As to what they need a passport for, possibly for an additional ID. Please let me know if you have additional questions and please do not forget to rate my service to you (not the state of the law) as that is the only way that I can get credit for my assistance. Even after you rate the service, I can still answer additional questions for you without additional charge. And don't forget that bonuses are always appreciated! Thank you.

When you responded that ICE requested for my passport was "possibly for an additional ID", is this certain? Have you had this situation with you real clients that their passports were given back to them and not held back (except, maybe, those with new criminal case). I see people present their passports and then given back to them when leaving. Would I need a passport when contacted by NVC? All these questions are just coming to me now. Sorry :-)

No. It is not certain, but I think you are over-worrying about it. I have neved had this situation, unfortunately. And no, no passport would be needed to contact the NVC.
