I hope so, I'm half freaking out cause I was not aware of the fees we would have to do or the Exam fee he will have to pay :/.

Mine was $265 can..I think. Dr Cheema in Surrey BC
MoaningOdin on 2019-02-15 said:
That's where his will be too, did you have to pay anything at the interview?
blank avatar Joan58 on 2019-02-15 said:
I was trying to find my transaction for Dr Cheema but of course I paid for TDAP and medical but it was less than $400 can. Maybe $345? No fees at Montreal interview. I stayed at a clean hostel style hotel 12 min walk from Consulate. I booked a superior queen room with private bathroom (must Have!) 3 nights for $170 tax etc incl. Don't be put off by area and Love shop I am 61 travelled alone and the location is great for Consulate, shopping etc. I walked there in the snowstorm on Wed๐Ÿ˜Š pm if you want the name

Congrats๐Ÿ’• I recd my EAD/AP last Thursday, headed to Canafa Friday Almost 7 mths without seeing my family. So great to be home for a week. Happy that you are with each other๐Ÿ˜Š

It's killing him waiting on his EAD, we got the NOA for it but him not working his absolutely driving him insane. He has completely rearranged the house twice! I'm excited for him to go back to work but it's been really nice having him home 24/7. I'm gonna miss it. I'm so happy you get to go see your family again! He doesn't have family alive anymore so we didn't apply for the AP.

It's a difficult transition, I started to volunteer at our local animal shelter. House and garden have def been too much of a I'll start looking for work in the New Year because we have a couple of family vacations booked. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ
MoaningOdin on 2019-09-19 said:
OH volunteering is a wonderful idea! There's a shelter down the road, I didn't even think of that! He wants to start work as soon as he can so we can save up and put a down payment on a house. He's ready for a yard so all his small projects can start coming together. I have a week off work in October but i think we are gonna use it more of a "staycation" rather than going out of town.

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.
