I thought I’d hijack this thread instead of starting a new one. I used to have a passport but it expired years ago. I hadn’t used it since 1994. Two moves since then, and I can’t find the old one anywhere. I know it didn’t get stolen, but it could have gotten accidentally thrown away during one of the moves.
Now I need a passport for a trip next spring. I was looking at the online application and was appalled at some of the questions they ask on the application, because I don’t have the answers. For instance, I was divorced almost 30 years ago. They want my previous husband’s name (I know that of course, except I don’t remember his middle name) and they want his birthdate and his birth place, neither of which I know. I think I’m screwed. I don’t even know where I might have gotten that information the first time I applied for a passport about 17 years ago. Do they really need that information for a marriage that happened that long ago? Yikes.
I see they have a form you have to fill out if you’ve lost your passport. Does anyone know if that still needs to be filled out if the passport has expired? It expired before it was lost.
This is going to be harder than I thought.
