    My grandma's local representative is Ron Paul, so I doubt he would be much help right now :) Should I contact one of the two people for Texas in the US senate? Or do I contact people in the Texas Senate?

        Morgan, I couldn't use the quote button for some reason but my FH needs to submitt all the affidavites and everything to apply for his passport. He already had his birth cert. I just hope that who ever was in charge of submitting her birth cert to the state after her birth was good and knew what they were doing, i.e. didn't put it in more than a year after her birth, otherwise you may run into problems with the passport office not the state department of health. I am assuming that is who you have been having trouble with laterly.

        FH had his birth cert and sent it in with his passport application, then about 3 weeks later we got a letter that said his birth cert was invalid because it was submitted more than one year after his birth, so legally I guess he is a year younger than he actually is. I dunno it is all confusing. I can tell you though that the passport people that we have talked to have been pretty helpful and nice.

        Good Luck, Keep us updated.

          I think what happens is when it was submitted a year late, it's considered deleyed. My grandmas was submitted 17 years after her birth. So you need more proof of age. We have 1 thing of proof (the school records). I'm just hoping that's enough. I'm going to contact our state representative. I think she went to school with my mom. I need to talk to my mom tonight & see what she wants me to say to her.

          I've already got my grandma excited about biking through coba. I need to make sure we can get her to Mexico!

              Great! I'm glad to hear that. My grandma got her birth certificate & applied for her passport last week. They told her it would take 4-6 weeks. So in 5 weeks if its not in I'll contact a local representative. The lady at the post office said the records were all she needed, but I know they can make mistakes. They approved my application & I had a birth abstract not a long form so I had to resubmit.

              My biggest fear was the birth certificate wouldn't come in, because they couldn't locate it when I went to our county courthouse. That worked out just a little deleyed so hopefully everything goes smoothly now.

                It came in!!!!

                School records were enough!

                It only took 2 weeks after we got the birth certificate!!!

                My grandma is going to Mexico!!!
