I am looking for some feedback on how to send my rukhsati pictures. I have in the past scanned and sent as email any proof that I wanted to add to my sponsorship file. Has anyone sent their pictures by email (not one huge file but all pictures in a word doc converted to pdf). Let me know if anyone has done that.
No electronic files are accepted..all hard files (in paper). They want printed pictures with date on it and also captions of who is in the picture. You have to print off whatever you have and courier it to them. This is what I have done and its very effective. Its according to their requirements. But its your free will, go right ahead if you want to delay your case a few more months.
E-mailing them too much about your status always works against you and case will be further delayed. This is a fact, many immigration lawyers have said this and many other people have also experienced this. One e-mail to get the file number is more than enough. As I said previously BE PATIENT.
Another thing, sending them voluntary additional documents once is more than enough. If you keep on sending it then they start to doubt that case. THE KEY here, send them whatever they ask for, nothing FALTU. This will start up unnecessary investigations.
A few cases will definitely get delayed such as if the wife is older than husband, if the applicant was a refugee, second marriages, applicant previously served in military and/or if applicant had some major travel history. These cases get delayed and go into interview.
The issue of CAIPS. If you order CAIPS, it does not affect your case in any way but it's usually ordered once the case goes into interview stage. It's ordered to find out why IO thinks he needs to conduct an interview.
Going to the MP, they don't make the process faster. They do the same thing that we can do at home. They go to the website and look up the processing time for CHC-I and say come back after "x" amount of months and if the file is still not "moving" then we will "contact" CHC-I.
Bottom line...Just wait and when you get the request for additional documents...follow instructions and send "only" what they ask for. Nothing extra.
You guys have probably heard the saying.."Jo zyada bolta hain, wo phansta hain"..."Jitna poocha jai, utna bolo"...as simple as that.
I understand many of you guys are "frustrated" like hungry horses since months and years now. And misunderstandings between relationships happen when the couple are not together with each other. The best thing is to get busy in something and limit the conversations with the spouse in order to keep the relationship healthy at this time. When you live together, it's a whole different ball game. This is just a T20 match. When you live together, that will be a test series. The first test, life before kids. Second test, life with kids while kids are small. Third test, upbringing of kids and their youth days. Fourth test, old age and kids getting married. Its the circle of life.
