A date which will live in infamy - December 7, 1941.

Clerk Hanlon and the Monmouth County Clerk's Office remember the U.S. service members who valiantly answered the call to defend our shores. On this 82nd anniversary, we remember and honor the over 2,400 Americans who made the ultimate sacrifice on that fateful day. Their bravery defined a generation and continues to inspire us all.

The current federal passport service times are now:
➡️ Routine service: 7 to 10 weeks*
➡️ Expedited service (for an additional $60): 3 and 5 weeks*
