Our Adventures with the Fiancé Visa was a blog I kept (beginning in about the year 2000 and ending in 2002) while my husband and I were going through the fiancé Visa process. I’m Canadian, he is from the US and now we are divorced and I’m back in Canada and he is still in the US.… Read the rest
It’s been awhile since I updated this page. There’s not going to be any happy ending to the story for those that like to read ‘Once upon a time’ type things. Todd decided he wants a divorce and since you can’t really have a marriage by yourself I agreed.
Anyway, as far as I know we have heard nothing from the INS about our final (greencard) interview.… Read the rest
Fingerprinting in St Louis
9/25/01 6:50 pm
Todd and I went to St Louis for the fingerprinting this past Wednesday. It was a lot of travel for me because I just got back from visiting my family in Toronto on Monday afternoon. I’ve certainly had enough road trips for awhile. Well, maybe for a couple of weeks.… Read the rest
Got the Parole
8/22/01 2:29 am
I’m in my parents home typing this, obviously I got the parole. It was a journey of many steps though.
First of all, I had a money order for $100 and they would not accept it. The fee was $95 (not according to the website) and luckily they would take a personal cheque.… Read the rest
Got the EAD in Chicago

Longtime CanAm members, might remember that it was exactly a year ago this weekend that I mailed our I-129f petition to the Nebraska Service Center.

We went through the Nebraska Service Center. I mailed the petition the last weekend of May 2000 and the visa was granted via Montreal in early December.
We’re now into the Adjustment of Status phase. We received our receipt the other day and it mentions a 26 month(!) waiting period before the AOS interview.… Read the rest
Hello CanAm Club
4/17/01 6:43 pm
I haven’t been in here for awhile, not that I haven’t thought about this Club now and then. Today Todd and I got a green letter saying our paperwork is accepted for the Adjustment of Status. Just cost $345.00 for them to read our file and send a nice green letter back.… Read the rest

I can’t keep the shortened forms clear in my head, just too much crammed in there I guess. 🙂
Todd and I just got the next round of paperwork from Vermont (VT?). Mostly, its a questionnaire about all my past work as a spy. 😉 Todd is working on filling it all out.… Read the rest
