Hi, which state do you live in? It may be fastest to visit the local DMV and see if you can get a state ID. Do you have a social security card or anything else with proof of your identity, even if not with a photo?

I have nothing.

I would suggest that you go to your state DMV and see if they can accept an affidavit and/or fingerprints to issue you a new ID.

Hello! My name is***** and I am a licensed attorney with more than 15 years of experience. I am here to assist you with your questions. Please understand that if I ask you for additional information, you are NOT charged again and our communications are NOT timed. So please see this as a relaxed conversation between friends. I am here to help. Also, please do NOT click on the Opt Out button because if you do, it would prevent me from communicating with you and then it could take a long time before another expert responds to you.

Sorry for the delay. I just ask that if it is bad news that you not shoot the messenger. Shooting the messenger is either leaving a negative rating (usually reserved for rude or unprofessional experts) or not leaving a positive rating at all.

Do you have anything that can prove that you are a U.S. Citizen? Do you have anything to prove who you are where USCIS can look you up to verify your identity?

Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo Senmartin, Immigration Attorney replied 8 months ago

I do not know why you are not responding, but you are not charged per question, per response, nor per answer. So after I give you my answer, you can continue to ask me questions without additional charge until you are satisfied. I apologize if it is a site issue that you posted and the post did not go through.

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.
