Uh yeah! I read about all this for years and even when actually doing it, I had/still haves some really lucid moments of, what am I doing again? Is this correct?

May I recommend LingChe's shortcuts? Not to necessarily do the 'barcode' thing but it's a really good, thorough list of what needs to be done for each part of the NVC portion of all this!

I found it really helpful.

Also, asking questions here helps OH and take a break once in awhile as it's super easy to get bogged down.

Best,

LGG

But reading and reading and reading more about the process is driving me looney! :clock:

Yes, it's very hard, but this is all in God's hands. I just take it day by day. That's wonderful that you are able to live with hubby. I can't wait for the day....

The entire process taken together is overwhelming. I think the best thing to do is take it step by step and it will all come together. I got into the habit of making Post-it-Notes of everything I had to take care of and stuck them to my desk. Then over the 10 months as they slowly disappeared I knew we were getting close to the end.

And yes, unfortunately Montreal is taking about 3 months from NVC completion to interview date. The wait is diffiuclt but worth it in the end. Good luck to everyone!

I know! It'll be the same for us. We'll drive to Montreal from Vancouver - eeeep. We're thinking Novemberish for our interview.

I really wish they hadn't stopped Vancouver's processing of immigrant visas.
