So relieved that the timelines are moving up.
And Material CONGRATULATIONS on the AIP. Can you tell us a bit about the interview?
Today, we finally NETFILED hubby's tax return. Wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be.
We redid the returns and thank goodness we did because we messed up on the others and would have owed almost $300 we weren't supposed to, phew. Thanks TeresaLynn for all your tax help. Can't wait to get this refund. Just need to mail my return in now.
And so he should get his refund in 8-10 days right? Now, I just have to figure out my US taxes....ugh yuck!
I Just wanted to thank every1 for all their help and support this is a great site without you guys I would have been lost!!!
Here is how it all went:
Both my wife and I were requested to be at the interview for those who don't know me I'm the sponsor. Knowing that we have an interview and after getting help from the wonderful people on here I started putting together a binder that had all the proof of our relationship I made sure it was neat and tidy , I had a lot of pictures developed at Wal-Mart about 75 before marriage and 84 after. We got there about an hour and 15 min earlier we waited until it was about 8:10 in the morning that's when the officer cam out and called my wife's name offcourse we were nervous and stressed out but my first impression of the officer was that she was ok and didn't seem to be too grumpy we all went into the booth together where she sat down behind a computer and introduced herself than she began gathering all the information and proof that we had put together By the time she was done with the papers she started browsing through the pictures she asked my wife a couple of questions about the pictures the questions were:
Who are those people in this pic?
where was this?
There weren't too many questions though, after that she said ok now Im going to start asking questions about your relationship but I'm not sure if I'm going to separate you.(I think by the time she went through the proof I had prepared she was 95% sure that our marriage is real) she didn't ask too many questions here are some of which I remember:
Where and when did you meet? And how did your relationship develop?
Do any of you have any scars or birth marks?
What are your plans for the future?
We answered those questions together sometimes I would ask her if she wanted me to answer or my wife and her response was that it doesn't matter so we were comfortable first that we were together and second because the officer was great! After she was done she went to make a couple of copies of some of my wife's ID and of the marriage licence (I forgot to include a copy but I had the originals with me).
When she came back I had a little box of collectables from our relationship I have collected them back from university when our relationship first started (I'm not a psycho but we were madly in love) in the box I had tissues that had different scents of perfume that my wife used I had a paper which had a drawing of her hand , lipstick, parts of paper cups that had marks that were made by her lipstick and a piece of her hair an so on....
The officer smiled when I was showing her the collectables and asked to see some of the stuff after that she said I would like to inform you that I will be granting you AIP
and you will be receiving a letter with in two weeks. hats when a big smile drew over our faces and I felt a strange feeling in my chest that feeling was slowly creeping to my legs (I wanted to get out of there before I start jumping up and down like an idiot)
She escorted us out I think i said a million thankyous along the way !!And that was it I know were not done yet but it was a big relief and also a very important step in our process.
