Passport Tips

Tips

  • Our Records Center is the only location that processes passports.
  • Mornings between 8:30am and 12:00pm are usually less crowded.

Our Passport agents process passport applications for:

  • First time applicants
  • All child passports (even if they have a prior passport)
  • Replacement passports that were valid less than 10 years (which includes all passports issued to a person before they turn 16 years old)
  • Replacement of passports that have been expired 5 years or more (regardless of length of validity)
  • Replacement of damaged or lost/stolen passports

Passport applications are processed at the Clerk of Court (COC) Records Center, Monday through Friday 8:30am – 3:00pm. These hours have been established to get applications to the Post Office in time to meet required deadlines for mailing to the U.S. Department of State.

APPLICANTS MUST BE PRESENT.

Once processed the applications are mailed to the U.S. Department of State for processing. Our policy is to serve our passport customers on a first come first serve basis. Please expect to spend at least 30-40 minutes with a COC passport agent as well as waiting time if there are others signed in before you.

ALL FORMS MUST BE COMPLETELY FILLED OUT BEFORE SIGNING IN.

Passport Renewals and Timing Notes

For passport renewals only, individuals must mail a renewal application (Form DS-82) directly to the U.S. Department of State. To determine eligibility for mail-in renewal, visit the U.S. Department of State’s passport renewal page

The Clerk of Court is not permitted to execute Form DS-82 mail-in renewal forms. When renewing your passport using Form DS-82, a COC passport agent may review the form for accuracy only. The form and applicable fees must be mailed by the applicant.

Please note that:

Our office is at half-staff during the lunch hours of 12:00 –2:00pm.
If arriving after 2:00pm, we cannot guarantee your application will be mailed the same day if there is a high volume of applicants already signed in and waiting for processing.
