Recommended Posts

Well i have been here 6 months now.. things are.going.great my immigration process was smooth compared to many i have met.. the most troublesome part was post-POE. It started with trying to get my driving license.. the tempoary stamp in my passport was faded and the date was unreadable.so the dmv dint know when to issue my driving license untill .. i spent all...day at the dmv untill they fixed it.. second major issue was woth the ssa..oh lord what a nightmare .. it took a good few weeks to get my ss number becuase it hadnt been applied for even tho the ds-230 i had checked the little box. Well apparently my local ssa (selmer tn) didnt quite know what to do.. the SAVE profile had my name on a way they couldnt input .. never the less i eventually got my card with an appology letter from the director of the local office stating they had implimented a new trainimg policy based on my case..

Since then things have been amazing we started renting our own place. Our son made an apperance to the world.hes 5 weeks old today :D. Ive started building my credit so i can eventually buy our own place. Found a job , been there 4 months, now looking forward to my roc
