Second Shot

The next set of papers is mailed. We gave them more than asked for but I'm feeling pessimistic. That's why I haven't posted anything yet. It was actually mailed almost a week ago, I've just have been waiting for a more cheerful mood to post. The cheer just isn't coming though. Maybe it's just the week I've had.

More Information?

So we finally hear back from immigration services and what they want is more information. They send two biographical information forms for us to fill out. Seems to be mostly a rehash of information they've already been sent plus a passport photo of me. Of me? Don't they have one of those on file? I do have a passport. Needless to say I was more than a little pissed, but there is nothing I can do about it.

So $18.25 global express postage to send this silly little form to Japan so she can fill it out. She has to sign it so I can't fill it out for her. Then she finds the form on their website. Don't I feel brilliant.

It's no wonder people need to hire lawyers to make sure they get everything filled out. All the information is on the web, but between the Department of State and the Department of Homeland Security they've worked to ensure it's as hard to find as possible. Some pages seem to be complete instructions, but they are not, nor do they point to or mention there are other things you need to know.

Oh well, it could have been worse. At least I didn't have to start over from the beginning. We'll send them what they asked for plus some extra stuff just in case they were planning to ask for that later, like a passport picture of her.

What next?
