Hey there!

Doesn't it feel good to be DONE with the packet??? :yes: My husband and I sent his packet yesterday. We're applying from Ankara, Turkey.

I dont know any information first hand, but I have many German-Turk friends who have gotten married to Americans. All I've ever heard were good things -- so here's hoping its true! :)

Hello there, from El Salvador,

I also felt great, well, more like relief when I finally gathered all the documents ready. I had to run around a while getting my husband´s birth certificate fixed because of one mistake made when he was born...

Anyway, after all the running around I can tell you it was quite frustrating to do the process here. It seems you will have an easier time since you made an appointment. I had to bounce like a ball trying to ask just how to pay for the DCF.

I am sure you have done this already, but be sure, double, triple sure you have all the documents filled out correctly and nothing is missing.

I thought I checked and triple checked, but there was one blank space I thought I had filled in with the computer, but I was called and had to return the next day.

Also the embassy here asked me for two photos of each of us, and not one like the form asks for.

And of course obvious stuff too, I did not think my residency would be an issue since I had been here since the end of 2006 and I just filed like two weeks ago.. Anyhow was sent home to bring documents to prove residency.

I had to wait in line outside, (again discrepancies of when we were told we were allowed to go in). And waited inside too. All sorts of other people asking for other things, and depending on how long it took them to be sorted out by one window teller person we were called. It took about two hours from getting there to leaving.

The lady examined all the documents to make sure all was there and there were no blanks, asked me to go pay at the window at another building and come back. And here the payment window was not open and i had to wait about a half hour for it to open. Once I brought back the receipt she said it was OK and it was filed and we would be contacted.

Hope this helps!
