Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
I am afraid that this is something that is well beyond the scope of what we can perform I am sorry to say. You would need to find an attorney in Puerto Rico and the only place to do that would be the same sites used by other attorneys, or and finding one that will answer on a Saturday evening is going to be tough. I am very sorry, but this is just way outside what we have the ability to do. I am very sorry to hear that they are having to go through this situation and that we cannot really provide any information to assist you other than what you have regarding the US Consulate/State Department office number there.

I am so very sorry about the situation you are in. I really wish it was something within the scope of what we could do for you, but it just is not. Again, I truly am sorry this is beyond what we can do anything with.
