Just wanted to say, I know I ask a boatload of questions and all but today, I really got a HUGE justification. After waiting, not too, too long, actually, at CSIS for 3 months, the NVC stuff is flying at me so fast and furious that I I can hardly breath. It made me feel a little wobbly about OMG, what's next, you know?

Anyway, I just wanted to say, you guys have been great. And I appreciate the patience given to me for asking the same questions more than once, in the wrong area or whatever. But holy moly, I feel like it's coming fast and without you all here for quick reference and such, I have to say, we'd be a little lost.

Oh and an FYI for anyone near abouts where I am in the process, when we got our Choice of agent form via email, it totally INVITED us to send it via email and to pay our AOS fee via the online service. It also requested that when we did so, NOT to send a hard copy as well as this could be a cause of delays.

just thought I'd pass that on to you.

Thanks a bunch, it's not over yet and I feel a little woozy with the speed if it but I wanted to say this board has replaced a lawyer and useless phone calls and pretty much everyone I've "met" has been been nice.

You all make a long, hard journey a little sweeter.

Thanks, that's the plan! I gotta say, I got used to the USCIS and thought i'd be waiting around for everything but it seems that every time I turn around and whoop, there's the next bit.

Not complaining, not complaining at all but it's a little like a quiet little nag that all of sudden shoots off and starts bucking wildly.

You got your NOA1 in March 2009, and four months later you're 3/4 of the way through things! Yes, it has zipped right by. I don't know how longer it's going to be, but I see you'll be interviewed in Montreal, so you could have several months waiting now for an interview. Congrats! I don't remember answering any of your questions, but that's nice that you thanked "us"! :lol:

That makes me feel better!

While I'm at it, for the AOS package, do we have to send them a photo copy of all that stuff? Or is it okay if we make a copy for our own records? I know I have to send a long a photo copy of the DS 230, which I will... but this way, we can send out the Affidavit of Support stuff toute de suite...

Thank you, you're all really great.

For the affidavit of support it's not really necessary. The only reason (that I can see) that they started asking for photocopies of the DS-230 stuff is so that they don't have to make a photo copy themselves, at the NVC or consulate.

For instance you send them and original of your Marriage Certificate, you get that back at the interview - just saves them making a copy.

The difference with the I-864 is that you aren't going to get that stuff back - if you give them pay stubs or a bank statment, IRS tax transcripts - they are keeping it.
