Dear Customer,

Thank you for posting your legal question today.

It is possible to apply at a passport agency in Chicago for a passport for travel within two weeks.

https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/passports/information/where-to-apply/agencies/Chicago.html

This can be a replacement passport.

In relation to Fedex's liability they can be held liable under the conditions of carriage.

Because your claim is for $10,000 your best remedy is to issue a demand to FEDEX for your loss and follow up in the small claims court.

You can sue in the small claims up to 10k and will get a case number ***** hearing date on the day you file.

If you have a copy of the contract with fedex , this can be reviewed by myself as an extra service.

Just let me know.

We are here to help.

In return, remember to rate positively before exiting.

You do this by rating 5*****, 4**** or better.

So I hope you rate FIVE STARS today

Thanks

Attorney Bill

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
