Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

For a name change on both passport and passport card, just send in the reg things (application, etc.) and include the passport card ?

**As of September 24, we have completed processing applications received in March, April, May, and June. We are making progress on applications received in July. Due to nationwide variations in staffing and the type of applications, some of our passport agencies and centers are already working on applications received in August and September.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

This is only true for kid's passports. Not adults
This has been widely reported. Sloppy article
I'm going to guess that's why they say "Due to nationwide variations in staffing and the type of applications, some of our passport agencies and centers are already working on applications received in August and September", if child applications are simpler to process they may be processing them first to keep the backlog number low.

Went in today, very smooth. Let's see if it actually takes 6 weeks

They cashed my check today. Making good progress.

What's the best way to get a same day passport in NYC area? NY passport office? Stamford, CT? Anything else? Need for a bunch of kids.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

To prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect our workforce and customers, we currently are limiting in-person appointments at our agencies and centers to customers who are traveling internationally in the next 72 hours (3 business days) due to a life-or-death emergency.

Does going to visit a person who just got a bad diagnosis qualify?

What about the places that do this for a fee?

Possibly. You can call the NY passport agency.

The Vermont passport agency is the only one in phase 3 of reopening, so if NY says no it's possible they'll allow.

There is no strict criteria. It's left to the individual agent discretion. You can HUCA with other passport offices. There are two hoops to pass - getting an appointment from the call center agents ('officers'), and getting the passport center to issue the passport.

If you can, get the doctor to state the significance of the visit for the welfare of the patient

I applied for my kids in Toms River PO on 7/8, and they told me it's sent to philly. I received the passports less than 3 weeks later. Based on that, it's likely to be processed very quickly.
Did you request expedited? According to the website they only send expedited passports to Philadelphia, and regular to New Hampshire.

No. They weren't even offering expedited then.
