    I have to show:
    1) a certified Birth Certificate
    2) a certified court document of my adoption
    3) a certified document showing name change from birth name to adopted name
    4) show marriage certificate, divorce papers, and all paperwork for my second marriage
    5) show certified court documents for EACH name change since birth

    and here's the kicker: since I was born overseas, adopted overseas, I also have to provide:
    6) the ORIGINAL naturalization papers along with a certified letter from the Court that issued those naturalization papers - with the original judge's signature testifying to the veracity of said documentation. Considering the man's been dead now about 25 years, that's going to be tough.
    7) and they want documentation proving I have the right to be here - they want a green card. I have never had a green card. I've been a naturalized citizen since I was 13 months old.

    I am taking my American Passport - and if that document isn't good enough, I already have a lawyer lined up - and my British passport ready to rock and roll outta here.

      Your DL is your ID.  And now it's no longer your ID when it comes to renewing it.

      What kind of crazy is that?

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
