I am planning to travel by Domestic Airlines this coming…

Customer Question
I am planning to...

I am planning to travel by Domestic Airlines this coming week, but I have lost my wallet containing all of my ID. I have secured a Temporary Drivers Licience from the Virginia DMV however it's one a Document with no photo. I'm told that the photo ID should arrive in 7 days, but I will be in route at that time. I don't have a Passport. What other forms of ID can I use to travel with?

Lawyer's Assistant: Regulations vary from place to place, so can you tell me what state this is in?

I'm in the State of Virginia and plan to travel to California and back to Virginia.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No, not yet. I'm hoping to be able to recover my wallet, but I do need to notify my Banks and Credit Companies.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No, just need to know what I can use to clear Security to board my scheduled flights.

In the event you arrive at the airport without valid identification, because it is lost or at home, you may still be allowed to fly. The TSA officer may ask you to complete an identity verification process which includes collecting information such as your name, current address, and other personal information to confirm your identity. If your identity is confirmed, you will be allowed to enter the screening checkpoint. You may be subject to additional screening, to include a patdown and screening of carry-on property.

You will not be allowed to enter the security checkpoint if your identity cannot be confirmed, you chose to not provide proper identification or you decline to cooperate with the identity verification process.

TSA recommends that you arrive at least two hours in advance of your flight time

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.
