I have been super duper busy since Saturday morning as I started painting my room. There is so much prep I have to do including getting new furniture and room decor
.. I am so sore right now from all the painting and running around on the weekend but its all good
My wife will be coming INshaAllah in two weeks from. She started her shopping after Re-med and PPR and will hopefully finish everything by the end of this week InshaAllah. I am already planning for a Reception here and for honeymoon
Now I will share you something very interesting with you guys about my case. My wedding was basically Nikkah + Dinner in a banquet hall in Karachi. Almost 500 people attended the wedding. My inlaws didn't want a rukhsati before my wife gets her Visa, so I came up with a SOLUTION. Since there was no Rukhsati but knowing CHC-Islamabad I explained the situation to my inlaws and they agreed to Dramatize a Rukhsati for the pictures. I also booked a 5 star Hotel in my and my wife's name for the wedding night just for the proof of Rukhsati. Then I threw a Reception dawat for 55 people in a restaurant as Reception; Again dressed up for the occasion with a suit and my wife picked her best dress for it. I stayed for 10 more days in Pakistan with my family. My wife stayed with her family but as we had dawats almost every day so she was there in the dawats and we took pictures there etc etc for the proof of cohabitation. I probably spent 60 thousand ruppees for reception and hotel room for a night but this little investment helped me avoid an objection letter, trip to Pakistan for Rukhsati and headaches & panic attacks. I just didn't want any objection so I came up with the whole idea and it worked Allhumdulillah
In June last year, 6 months after my case was filed. I sent proof of contact comprised of phone history, text messaging history, chat history, facebook chat, my friends and my wife's friends comments on our wedding pictures on facebook etc etc along with the emails for the past 6 months. I also sent an updated PCC.
I visited Pakistan one year after my wedding for our 1st wedding anniv and took lots of pictures and kept proof just incase if CHC-Islamabad asked me for proof of visit and pix etc etc. I just briefly told them about my trip in a status inquiry email. Although the GCMS notes don't mention anything about the visit.
When the VO opened my wife's file in early Feb, he had all the proof he needed. Then he also looked at the updated PCC. The only thing that was missing was the supplementary form. He waived the supp form as he had most of the things he required and asked for Re-med and PPR straight up. Unfortunately, the staff screwed up and either forgot to send Re-med and PPR or didn't send it on purpose as they probably wanted to wait for the 2nd quarter Visa quota.
Afterall, I strongly believe that you have to try your best at everything you do and then leave everything upto Allah as only Allah knows whats best for his people. I hope I gave some useful information to those who can't have a Rukhsati due to the bride's family not being okay with it. I totally understand their point of view regarding having rukhsati after Visa. But in order to counter that I came up with this plan and executed it successfully Alhumdulillah
Now I ll get back to replying your PMs
Smart move though....
