We understand how stressful it may be to have your documents either lost or stolen, but we’re here to help make the process as smoother so you can get your new document as quickly as possible.
There are a few steps involved in the process. First, we’ll need to draft an Affidavit of Identity to which you will swear and confirm that you are who you claim to be. In order to do this, you will also need to bring somebody along with you who can verify your identity and show us a piece of government-issued photo identification.
This person will need to swear that you are in fact the person you claim to be in addition to you, the affiant, swearing an oath. While there are many people who can serve in this role, we recommend that you bring a family member. You can also bring a friend whom you have known for a long time.
