Here we go again....
At about 1am this morning I finally got our I-751 Petition to Remove Conditions completed and ready to go.
For all those who have been through the immigration process, I don't need to tell you what it involved! But needless to say as usual with these immigration things it was alot of work getting all the required evidence together.
For the rest of you here's an idea of what went into it:
Cover Letter, then index pages throughout, 2 years of Tax Returns, a statement from every bank, saving or credit card account we have, life insurances, wills, retirement policies, mortgage, warranty deed, green card, passport, drivers licence, 3 sworn affadavits from friends, joint memberships, travel bookings, pictures, then lots of misc' pieces of paper that prove we live together or I live here. Oh and last but not least, a check for $545 to process it all :-)
The next step is I will get called into the USCIS (United States Customs and Immigration Service)in OKC for biometrics (fingerprints and picture) despite them having done this just 2 years ago. Then hopefully inside the 9-12 months it's currently running at, I will receive a 10 year Unconditional Green Card and be done with the USCIS for a few years!
Having said that, I plan on applying to Naturalize as a Citizen next July, as the fee's seem to double each year.
So above is our 'small' missive to the USCIS, all I have to do now is find a binder big enough to get it into, as they get very upset if you punch holes in it! It will be on it's way tomorrow, as they are also very insistent it arrives close to 90 days before my Conditional Green Card expires, but not before 90 days or they will send it back to us.
I think you get the picture!
