Q: 

If I order a passaport today how long it will take to get here?

A:  There''s something like 194 countries in the world and they each have their own way of handling passports. So there is no umbrella answer. Since you don''t say what country you''re in the only possible answer is for you to call whatever agency handles this in whatever country you''re in and ask them. While I could be wrong I will go on record as saying that there is not a single mind-reader in all of the Y!A world. If it''s a new passport, it could take up to two months. If it''s a renewal, it usually just takes a couple of weeks. You do not state if it is a renewal or a new one. You can receive a passport anywhere from 10 days to 3-4 weeks. I got mine in 4 weeks. Sometimes it takes longer or shorter. It just depends....

How long does a care package take to get from D.C. to Afghanistan?

If he is out of the West Coast/Pacific then it goes to FPO/APO, AP so it is processed through San Fran and then over, so time to get to there and then on to Afghanistan. Out of the East Coast/Europe then it could be based out of the APO/FPO, AE or AA and will go out of either New York or Miami so it won''t take that long for it to get there and then processed.

Q: 

How Come when a Person rapes a child,they go to jail yet when a priest does it,they just get moved to another?

A:  First off, raping needs to stop period. I don''t care weather you''re a priest or the 40 year old Gardener that I hired to mow my grass, it needs to stop. Not all priest rape, let me clarify that but when they do, it''s like a trusted community member. So, other Churches might say, oh, that was his past, everyone has a past, let''s just leave it at that. Priest are trusted to do good after they do wrong. That''s why other Churches hire them. When they do it again, they just move on to another. I have an idea, how about the damn police get involved and put the priests away before they strike again. That would take them off the street and not have a repeat of what happened. Well... I live in the United States, we do have a few cases of this here and there but for the most part, it

Q: 

when a apartment complex owes you money why does it take so long to recieve what i have overpaid them

A:  I realize that stating that you need to be patient might be the straw that breaks the camels back so let me try another approach. Most States have Tenents Rights documentation that are usually located at your County Clerks offices. Here you should find how long a Landlord can keep funds after you move. Tenents are obligated to return property to a Landlord in good condition, and Landlords have obligation to the tenent. Check with your local Clerks office for specifics. If you recently moved out of a unit, and are waiting on the refund of your security deposit; then, under California law, the landlord MUST (within 21 calendar days of your move-out) either send a full refund of your security deposit, or mail/personally deliver an itemized...

Q: 

How long does student finance take to send passport back?

A:  I had this problem because I didn''t pay for correct postage....so it ended up getting sent to some mail place in Glasgow or something...but nobody bothered to tell me despite the return to sender address on back lol....had to ring various places to find it... However if yours was sent special delivery I''m sure there would be no problem with this? Student Finance are just incredibly slow and disorganised, tbh. Ring them up to find out if you''re that worried. Yes, I sent mine by recorded delivery and it got there on August 31st, i''ve checked online! But my account still says awaiting further information and so far i''ve heard NOTHING from them. Radio this morning said tens of thousands of people are still waiting for their application to be processed, so many people are in the same...

Q: 

How long does the process take to adopt a baby in the US?

A:  It takes about 1-3 months to do your homestudy depending on the agency and how fast you get all your paper work in. Than once your homestudy is done and you have a profile set up you generally go on a waiting list and just wait for a birthparent to choose you. How long you wait can vary any where from a few weeks to a few years. The agency we are working with the average wait is a year. Your wait time will depend on if you are open to any race, gender, special needs, drugs and alcohol during pregnancy, and if you are able to pay any amount of fees. Since the birthparent generally gets to choose the adoptive parents for their child you''ll have better luck if you are in a good position to adopt, if you are poor, young, unmarried, and unsuccessful your chances...

Q: 

How long would you have to wait to get promoted from PFC to Specialist if you were demoted and gain it all bac?

A:  If you already have the time in service (24 months), all you would need is the time in grade of 6 months - making 01 Sep 10 your next advancement date (barring any discipline issues of course). And because you were demoted, you cannot get a waiver. Soldiers who are demoted must serve the full time in grade/service in order to be considered for advancement/promotion. Update: Like I stated, you must meet the FULL time in grade and time in service requirements for advancement to SPC because you got demoted. You are not eligible for any waivers and August would only put you at 5 months in grade. September is what you''re looking at for your SPC. Also, ask that 42A NCO to look at the ''triple Alphas'' for promotion. I guarantee your name is on there for advancement eligibility for September....

Q: 

Why it take so long for a homeowner to get an affordable home mortgage?

A:  It takes about 30 days, because of all the people involved, customer, Realtor, lender, appraiser, pest inspector, home inspector, county, title company, the list goes on and on. A good lender will help coordinate all of this and close within 30 days. Yeah I previously worked at a mortgage broker company and it was getting extremely difficult to do loans. It took 3-5 times longer, we had to pre underwrite it with my processor and my boss and we just waited to see what the underwriter would condition us for next. NOw this new job I have with Peoples Bank is a hundred times better. We actually have an awesome support system and admin staff that is always available to help us. Instead of finding a reason to turn down loans, they are willing to meet with us before we...
