Customer Question
have: social security card, declaration...
My passport and birth certificate were lost or stolen. I do have: social security card, declaration of legal name change, drivers license, and divorce papers. Social Security has all my 3 different names on file. I have an ancient passport from when I was married 50 years ago.

I want to go to Canada and heard I might be able to get some kind of card for that???

But I really want a passport so I can really travel.

If you can advise me, I will be very grateful. Thank you.

Hello and Welcome, My name is Andrea and my goal is to provide you with Excellent Service,

 

You can get your Birth Certificate from the Department of Vital Statistics and take that with your driver's license and your Social Security Card to any US Post Office because they have applications for passports. You can fill it out right there, pay the fee and they will send it for processing. You cannot use a passport for official identification if it expired more than 15 years ago. Believe me, I know, I am in the situation,

My whole problem is that I don't have my birth certificate, and was given the run-around when I tried to get it from Connecticut. I even called them by phone and was rebuffed. When I search online, there is no official "Bureau of Vital Statistics" - just a long list of offers to help, with money up front and no guarantee. I could go broke and never get my certificate. This is all very puzzling and upsetting to me. I sorry but your answer was not helpful. I already knew what you said and it doesn't get me anywhere. Originally I tried to contact a passport lawyer, but was shunted over to you. I just can't say that I'm satisfied.

Here is the Official Website of the Connecticut Department of Public Health,

 

http://www.ct.gov/dph/cwp/view.asp?a=3132&q=388130&dphNav=|46940|&dphNav_GID=1601

 

You can get the form from that website, then fill it out and send it to the Office of Vital Records in the Town in which you were born

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.
