Hello Ma'am,

Thank you for this notification.  According to the FDCP FOI Manual, it states, "the FRO shall inform the requesting party of the extension, setting forth the reason for such extension.  In no case shall the extension exceed twenty (20) working days, unless exceptional circumstances warrant a longer period."  

As such, I shall expect delivery by December 4 (which is 20 working days from today).  

Please inform me if my requests are an "exceptional circumstance" that would require FDCP more time for processing.  If this is the case, I would like to know the date of delivery.  

Thank you again.
