Hello my name is ***** ***** I am delighted to answer your questions today. I have 35 years experience as an immigration lawyer.

You can apply on Monday for an emergency passport. You won't be leaving on a plane tomorrow. With all the terrorist activity, no one without a passport is allowed to board a plane.

Where do you live and I will find the nearest emergency passport office for you.

Have you taken out all the drawers of the chest where you kept the passport? I have had many clients find their passport between drawers. They slipped inbetween them.

Please consider that I do not run the passport agency but can only help you get a passport as quickly as the process allows.

I see this is the first time you are using JA and I am eager to make this a positive experience for you. Please ask follow-up questions if my answer is not clear.
Of course, I am sure you understand your positive rating is very important to me as we are not on salary and that is how we receive compensation, you choosing a smiley face or 3+ stars
In the future, you may begin your questions with “FOR JUDITH” and I will be your personal immigration expert.

May I answer anything additional for you to earn your satisfaction. I strive to give good customer service and comprehensive answers. I feel I have failed you. Please tell me what additional information would be helpful. Experts are only compensated for their time if you give a positive rating.

I did not control the process unfortunately I have no ability to work magic. I can only give an honest answer.
