Trinidad Birth Certificate
I've been trying to check the status of birth certificate application that was submitted 3 months ago with no avail.
I called the consulate number provided on the application, with no luck. The phone is never answered by a live person, you leave messages and no one calls you back. I called the consulate in Miami and get a live person every single time, and any questions I have is answered in a timely manner. I don't get why the Consulate in New York is so unprofessional, no one answers the phone or extensions you were provided nor do they return calls. What kind of government agency is this.

Passport delay
Some of you waiting up to one year, well I am waiting two years plus. They have everything except I was called and told that I have to find someone x amount of years older than me in Trinidad to say they know my mother because on one paper the E came before the U and another one is the U came before the the E. Now I am 59 years where am I finding anyone there since I have lived here for more than 32 years ? They all dead.
Totally sick

If anyone from the consulate is reading this, can you please give us some sort of guidance here. I do not have my passport and you took my old expired one. Please answer some questions on your website:
Are you currently working on the passports?
What is the expected additional delay?
Why the delay?
Can you return the old passport in the meantime?
Please recognize that a wait beyond one year to renew a passport is shamefull and unacceptable.

I applied for my electronic birth certificate on February 28th 2014, I purchased the money orders for two copies and received receipts but have not received the documents. I called the to office to no avail, I emailed the office no reply ,every time I check online , sorry no records found.
this office is a joke and playing with people sanity, I cannot believe that in this century with all the modern technology that these folks are so backward.

There was a problem with my name. ...now mind u I am in the usa....already. issued a passport...just wantin a renewed one so i can some sort of id in this concrete jungle....1yr. Later still no passport..I am goin to try again...wish me luck
