  1. It's a bit too much city for me too. I was born and raised on acreage, so we are hoping to find some property in a small town in the next couple years. I am still so elated that this nightmare chapter is over. Dancing on air happy!
  2. Yes! I suggested to my fiance that we should just marry on that day so we always have a holiday and fireworks on our anniversary, but I don't think he's convinced. haha I'll be in the DFW area
  3. We're heading down on the 20th.
  4. Update: I HAVE MY VISAS!!! I woke up this morning to a notification from Canada Post saying that there was an issue with my address and they're working on sorting it out, and my package won't be delivered until the 13th! So I immediately called and they told me they're working on it and it could take up to the 16th to get my package delivered! OH HECK NO! So I emailed the executive support person at Canada Post (the highest up on the chain of command) who had done the investigation the first time, and she immediately called the Mail Depot in my town and made them go and locate my package and bring it to the front. The depot called me and said they have the package and asked if I would like to go and pick it up, so I said I would be there asap. While I was there, the consulate had emailed me because they noticed the an issue with the tracking as well. I picked up and signed for the package, and opened it right there in the post office to make sure everything was complete. Not 10 minutes after I signed for it, I received an email from both the consulate AND Canada Post's Executive support asking me to confirm that I received it because they saw it was picked up. I confirmed and thanked them both for tracking my package the entire time along with me and had such fast responses. I AM SO FREAKING HAPPY AND RELIEVED!! Moving Date June 20th!

  6. Agreed. I'm still not holding my breath or getting excited until I have the package in my hand though.
  7. I just received another phone call from the consulate. They said that they are making an exception on my case and are mailing the new visas directly to my address via priority next day shipping. I should expect them to arrive on Monday.
  8. I think it was just a fluke that the Consulate called the day after my fiance contacted his Senator. Montreal is known for their slow activity, like molasses in January slow. Unfortunately I don't know resources on this topic I can recommend, perhaps you will be able to find something relevant to your situation in a search.
  9. So I have another update to post: Yesterday I sent another email to the consulate asking for an update (since they never responded to me since the accidental reply mishap), and the USC sent an email to his Senator requesting an inquiry. Today I personally received a phone call from the person at the Visa Unit who is handling my case. She said that she wanted to call me to tell me she is sending me an email and she wanted me to know so I look for it right away. They have received my new passports and are going to do everything possible to get my my visas reissued promptly. But unfortunately everything that went along in the sealed package with my missing passports, are also missing (obviously), and that I need to send them ALL my original documents + photocopies of everything I presented at the interview (Birth Certificates, Divorce Certificate, Divorce Decree, Custody orders for the kids, new passport photos for the visas, another copy of the criminal record check, etc) and they are contacting the medical examiner's office themselves to get another copy of our medical exams directly. Why the heck wouldn't they ask me to send all that stuff when they asked me to send the new passports?? smh. Anyways, she assured me that my file wasn't leaving her desk, and she instructed me to get all those things into the mail ASAP and told me what to write on the envelope so that it doesn't sit in the mail room. She said that if I get it into the mail today, it would reach the Consulate on Tuesday. But because Monday is a holiday for them, she won't receive it until Wednesday. She said she is expediting everything so I will hopefully receive my new visas for the 4th of June. I sent everything off today. Fingers crossed there's no more messing around and I indeed get my stuff back as quickly as they say.

  11. The expedited shipping only allows the passports to be delivered to your home address, rather than picking it up from the post office. I figured with one less 'step' the docs needed to go through, the safer they would be. They're sent Xpress Post either way. Paying the extra $20 does nothing for someone's sticky hands, or whatever mishap from happening while it's en route (mine was at the processing plant).
  12. I'm still waiting for mine. Mine got 'lost' in the mail, had to wait for the consulate and CP to preform an investigation, then go through the process to get new passports, before sending them back to Mtl for a visa re-issue. They were delivered back to the consulate on the 2nd and I am still waiting to hear back if they have even come out of the offsite mail room yet (sent 2 emails so far).
  13. So, on Thursday when the 10th business day hit, I emailed back asking for an update. Then yesterday morning, they mistakenly replied to my email (rather than forwarding it) with a message to their supervisor asking what they should tell me!! They immediately sent me another email requesting to recall the previous one they mistakenly sent! (Too late, I saw it. And I don't think you can un-send an email anyways). But they never ended up answering my email or giving me any information. Now it's a long weekend and the earliest I will hear back will be Monday. 🤬 This is turning into such a #### show
  14. Hey guys, STILL waiting... From my last message, the consulate responded to me saying that all mail goes to an offsite facility and can take up to 10 business days to actually reach the visa unit. 😤 So when the 10th business day hit (Thursday), I emailed back asking for an update.

  15. Nothing much to update with yet. I contacted the Consulate last week to confirm they have received my new passports (tracking shows they were delivered on May 2nd). The replied back saying that the visa unit doesn't have them yey and it can take up to 10 business days to get from their offsite mailroom to the visa unit. (That will bring me to tomorrow.) I am hoping that they have them now and just haven't told me they do. I will be emailing them again in the morning.
