  1. My 2 cents on the the immigration lawyer thought would be to not get one. Ours has only slowed down our process and made things more stressful. My wife's father paid for the expense and the lawyer came highly recommended. I have not come across a single person mentioning how an immigration lawyer has helped their journey on all the different threads. In fact the opposite is the case, and people just mention how hopeless and non communicative theirs has been. However....this is just one person's opinion. If I could do it over again (even though my wife and I did not personally invest) I would do it all myself and not hire anyone. I have ended up doing most of the work anyway. Websites likes this are a wealth of information, and if you are ever unsure you can always ask. Take the time one evening to scroll through the different threads relevant to starting out the process and I think you will see how much you will learn. My biggest tip is to just take your time and always triple check everything. Never rush the process. Leaving something a day or two to make sure you have it right, can save you in the long run. As for Boundless I have no idea. Best of luck!
  2. You were very lucky. I think you will find that is not the case. My first submission back in May took nearly 4 weeks and followed the timeline exactly.
  3. Modus Operandi is the name of a local beer where I live haha. I had to read it twice to realise you for sure were no talking it
  4. No, we are still going through the submitting process. Everything is marked as approved or accepted. But they now want proof of current employment from my sponsors (in-laws) and my wife. All of which were in the I-864/a forms. So they are really dragging us through the mud now
  5. Thank you! You have made me feel slightly less panicked. Yes the lawyer has been incorrect about just about everything through our journey. And I thought that was the case with 'new documents'. Thank you again!
  6. He will file most likely the day before, as he has clients taxes to complete first. We just do not want to have to wait 6+ weeks after submitting for our documents to be reviewed....again. We were told by out lawyer that they would not accept anything new at the consulate interview..? In other words, anything that was not submitted and approved by the NVC
  7. Thanks for answering. He will file most likely the day before they are due, as he has clients returns to do first. We do not have an interview date as this is supposed to be the final 'hoop to jump'. We just do not want to have to wait a further 6+ weeks for them to review our documents ( our 4th time ) *sighs*
  8. Hello, I had my final document approved after appealing via a Senator. They were asking for 2018 tax returns, and my sponsor has his own accountancy firm, so he filled extensions for his wife (my in-laws). The NVC said they still wanted to see the 2018 tax return, but we pointed them towards the letter from his firm (uploaded in August) that states extensions have been filed. So they approved that letter...and then said they want proof of employment from my sponsor, his wife and my wife. Our lawyer thinks there is a chance that even if we get approval that when we have our consulate interview that they will reject me because I have not presented the 2018 taxes. You can not being new documents to the consulate interview too. Has anyone else heard of people being rejected at interview stage for this reason? Any insight would be much appreciated

  10. You are 100% on the money! However she holds all our documents in her possession and was paid 18 months ago . So with one document left to submit we just want her to finish it off ( I hope I don't live to regret those words). But everything you said was so correct. It really is not that hard, and even before submitting these documents at every point her and her paralegals were hopeless. In hindsight, we should have ditched her 6 months ago when we started the NVC process. p.s you sound way more competent than she is...can we hire you!
  11. Thanks, however we are not the ones uploading it therefore can not preview them.
  12. Hey Duke and Marie, My documents were finally reviewed. All but one was accepted. The passport was just a case of scanning the passport photo again and uploading (it looked exactly the same as last time, so I really think it depends on how angry the person checking is that day), I-864 forms just had to be signed (we think our lawyer screwed up and uploaded the unsigned copies, as they were signed by my sponsor). The only think that was not accepted was letter from my sponsors accountancy firm stating that we will not be submitting 2018 taxes at this time as an extension was lodged. However it appears they are not happy with this and said I need to upload 2018 taxes. I hope this aides you in someway. This will be my fourth attempt. So my advice is to take your time, make sure everything is 100%. A few extra days means nothing compared to hearing you have to resubmit after 6 weeks (current time for them to review). Best of luck
  13. Well all my previous documents were approved, and the CEAC page has every section as 'Accepted'.... however even though we put forward formal documentation stating an extension for 2018 taxes had been submitted, they still have asked for them. However the document that we submitted outlining the extension from the accountancy firm is still marked as 'submitted', so it does not look like it has been reviewed like my other documents. On to my 4th time submitting....I hate this.
  14. It's torture isn't it...please post when you hear something. Seeing people have their cases looked at in under 3 weeks is very frustrating.
