Knowledge can only be obtain from asking questions and searching for the answers.

Re: options

I sent an email to Lucia at Patronato INAS, Orland Park, IL and to the NY Consulate yesterday. I will wait till I get a response from them before I mail a letter to the mayor. I don't think writing to the mayor will help. Just another $18 for a registered letter and 6wks waiting for a possible reply...
