Never received a confirmation number for passport

by Laurice
(Wellsville,NY USA)

Question: I applied for a passport back in August with all necessary documentation. I received a letter and provided more information and still have not heard back.


They still have my documents: birth certificate, college records, social security proof, divorce paper (proof of showing different name). Information regarding my parents: when deceased and their ss numbers, DOB, where they where born, their parents' names. Including my brother who moves all the time and we don't contact each other, unknown address. The place I was baptized; it no longer exists but provided the church name. The addresses I could remember through the years/or the towns and states. And my Attorney's information but I have not heard anything back.
