Customer Question
Hi Judith, This...

Hi Judith, This is Imogen. I am a US Citizen, but was born abroad. I have lost/misplaced my Naturalization papers somehow. My father, a Germany physicist, brought his family to America back in 1954 with the Van Braun group of scientists. Remember Germany had lost the war (WW II), and their hope was to continue scientific research in Physics and Lighting as well as provide for their families. I live in Colorado Springs now and need to know which government office would let me apply for a new Naturalization papers/ US Citizen Papers. Thank you kindly for your help. ImogenDanke (- Thanks)

Lawyer's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Yes. The LEAP office in Colorado Springs, need this verification/documentation - an unexpired copy - by Monday, January 23, 2016 in order to process my request for assistance in paying my previous two Utility bills. Otherwise the heat will be shut off by Jan. 27th. Letter sent from El Paso County Dept Human Services, PO Box 39200, Colorado Springs, CO 80949.(###) ###-#### ***** do I do if this kind of request takes longer to get then just 7 days?Imogen

Lawyer's Assistant: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Immigration Law Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. We can help you for less if you're not in a rush. Are you willing to wait a bit?

Of course. Thanks. Imogen

Dear Imogen,

I only wish I could make magic happen for you but it will take at minimum 6 months to get your naturalization certificate replaced.

You have to file an application for replacement of your naturalization certificate with the USCIS using this form N-565 at this link

http://www.uscis.gov/n-565

Since it appears you are in financial difficulties you can request a waiver of filing fee on this form I-912 at this link

http://www.uscis.gov/i-912

I strongly recommend you contact Catholic Charities in Colorado Springs and go in to seek assistance from them. They provide help with these sorts of issues

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
