I know what you mean. I think everyday that passes without much feedback makes the anxiety grow. My husband and I did make some mistakes in our forms which drove us nuts (a signature missing from one of the forms, forgetting to tick a box). We started calculating the days our setbacks would cost us.
That is my biggest fear! I picked over those forms with a fine tooth comb, and yet I still feel we missed something, and what that mistake will cost us. And we really NEED these process done before august. The thought of leaving my wife in Germany while I take the kids with me to Canada scares me. I feel like I am going to have to rip my family apart.
Adding to that, around the holidays the sponsorship approval time went up to 70+ days... we were very concerned. Eventually it has turned out fine (we sent in replacement forms via snail mail, a long with many faxes, to amend our errors and have the newly sent files added to our application... apparently this worked, in spite of getting yelled at by a CIC worker for doing this).
We still have sources of stress and doubt: my husband's passport expires in November and we will probably fly in July, so he may have to renew his passport (sometimes you can't travel if your passport is 6 months from expiring) and Venezuelan passports often take time to get renewed.
I have heard that too. About the 6 months thing. I hope he can land in Canada before he hits that deadline.
But that's part of this gig. A life changing decision will generally carry such weight since you are almost literally changing your life.
I don't know how many months we thought about this and made sure this is what we really want, and if all this stress and money and craziness would be worth it. But it will be, I am sure. And so we run into this head on and hopefully I make it through with all of my hair
Good luck sabaniga. Feel free to add your details to the Berlin Spreadsheet.
