Vital chek is past terrible, I would not recommend this site to anyone save your money, it is nothing like they advertise. Slow and when it takes to long they tell you there is no refund, alrighty then. Don’t use this service.
I sent for my Birth record in Oct of 2013 still do not have it—had to go to vital records,
which cost 10 $ and 15 minutes with the nicest lady. In fact I have my passport and I still don’t have the birth cert from vital chek.
I CAN NOT SAY ENOUGH DO NOT USE THIS SITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I, too, shifted from being an English prof to a different line of work involving technology and teaching. Would be happy to talk.

Would you believe that I’m an English teacher and have taught for years to single-space block quotations? I had a professor in college who swore by it. You have corrected about 200 students this year from learning the incorrect format. Thank you again.
