A: The grace period for leaving after completion of classes is 60 days. However, if he stopped attending classes during the semester or requested a leave of absence, he should notify the school, have them make appropriate updates to the SEVIS system, and leave within 15 days of filing that notice with the school.

A: You say your mother lost your passports; what country issued them?

The information you give is too vague to provide specific information, but the bottom line is this: if you are in a country other than that of your citizenship, visit to embassy or consulate of the country from which you claim citizenship and ask how to renew your passport.
