Hi. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney. I would be happy to provide assistance. Please give me a few minutes to formulate a response. Also, please keep in mind that our conversation does not include an attorney-client relationship and this is for general information purposes only.

Where are you applying for the passport? Do you have a birth certificate, driver’s license, and social security card?

Where do you live? I have had my best experiences getting my passport at either a post office or city hall? If you tell me where you live, I will do some research for you. What do they claim that they are missing in order to ID you?

Also when I ask them what parts did they cannot properly identify me they responded was they could not tell me that information so I asked them to how can I correct or get the problem resolved they just sent me the same forms over and over again and request the same documents over and over again and I sent them over and over again

Go to this website and make an appointment at city hall: http://www.sbcity.org/cityhall/city_clerk/passports/default.asp

When you talk to them, explain what happened at the post office and ask them to confirm that the identification that you plan to bring is sufficient. If you can, please get the name of the person that you talked to. In my experience, the clerks at city hall welcome the opportunity to process passport applications. I think that you are helping them to meet a quota.

I hope this helps. Please go ahead and rate me. If you have any follow-up or clarification questions, please ask! There is no additional fee. If I have fully answered your question(s) to your satisfaction, I would appreciate you rating my service (hopefully Excellent/5 stars!) at the top of the screen. Otherwise, I receive no credit for assisting you. I thank you in advance for taking the time to provide me a positive rating! A BONUS is also appreciated if you feel I've earned one today.
