Blue Monday

Hello all...

We received the Blue slip today. I don't have all the final details yet, but what I do know is that it revolved around a couple of things:

1) Back in 2005 and 2006 my former spouse and myself had filed for divorce but we still lived in the same house while we were trying to sell it. During this period I had met and started an online relationship with my Vietnamese fiancee.

Apparently, the CO focused in on this and caught my fiancee off-guard with detailed questions about this. I didn't spend a lot of time on this to prepare with my fiancee because, I did get divorced, finally sold the house and live in another place. I thought this would not be a major point. Especially with all the overwhelming evidence I had. Boy, was I wrong.

2) My fiancee, while I can understand her and she can understand me, speaking English, I think she froze and hesitated too long when talking with the CO, I'm kicking myself for not paying for English classes. Even with the translator, I am sure she was nervous and didn't understand the questions clearly. Especially after getting interrogated with question number 1, it was all down-hill from there..it got to the point of where they told her why can't you understand English if you speak to your fiance on the phone, and read emails...talk about compounding the problem..aaaaaaargh!...

The CO was a black woman who was bi-lingual in vietnamese and English.

More work to do, I can't give up, I've put so much money, time (4) trips...I have a sweet fiancee , I need to be strong for her.., I need to face that I have had a divorce, so I guess they need more proof than a normal arrangement..even though I had a comprehensive package with enormous information...I will post more details later when I read what the blue slip actually says....

sucky day, sucky day..

Sorry to hear about that. I'm sure you'll be able to straighten it out.

I had a similar situation, it was a girlfriend, a house we bought together and 35 cats (when we split up). It was before I met Thi. She know about it but it isnt in our petition. We did talk about it in our chats tho.... I'm better make sure Thi's ready just in case.

Another couple also had a bi-lingual black woman, but their experience was pleasant and got the pink.....

Let us know when you have more details.

Again, I'm sure you'll get the pink in the end!!

Peter and Thi
