I-130 mailed at long last

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Everyone seems to like to announce this, so I'm letting everyone know I just dropped off my and Fely's I-130 Petition at the post office. After waiting over two years to be able to do so, it feels so good.

And I now understand the anxiety everyone seems to feel when they are about to mail their petitions. I've been pulling out my hair for the past week, and I really don't have a lot to spare! Just two days ago I found that somehow Fely had missed signing the copies of the G325a. We had made 2 sets, and the set I brought home was not signed. Fortunately I also had her sign 4 blank G325a's, which I filled out on her behalf.

Then I found two other little mistakes and fixed them, checked the documents probably a dozen more times, spent all day today assembling them with fasteners, photographed everything for my records, and now they're on their way!

Okay, I'll shut up now. :blink:

Thanks my friends. I've been emailing all my family and friends to let them know since I returned from the PO. I can't wait to tell Fely, but her phone seems to be off.
