well my hubby had his interview bright & early this morning. He said he was dressed and waiting since last night
. I urged him to pull an "oliver" and show up with all his luggage dressed in winter attire (for all those who know and love Oliver you can just imagine).. HOW FUNNY WOULD THAT BE?
The IO was apparently a really nice lady. Cold at first but then warmed up. She told him he needs an ARC. She would do his background check and submit her recommendation - which takes about 2 months. she asked him a few questions about his past and why he made some poor decisions. Asked about me and our daughter and whether we had been down to visit. Asked if I worked and where etc.
It was about 45 minutes and he left with a slip for the fees (which he took immediately to the bank and back to submit already... we're not wasting hours, nevermind days).
He asked her what his chances are and she said that if all the background checks come back clear - there's no reason for him not to be approved.
She also said there would be another interview (I guess it's the final ARC decision). So looks like 2 months for the ARC and I'm guessing the visa wouldn't be too long after that (gulp).
So now I just hope and pray all the background checks go smooth.
guys thank you so much for all of your support these past few weeks. LCW when I read your note this morning I could feel the love and it actually brought a tear of joy to my eyes... it's amazing how I don't know you all but through here yet feel really close to everyone.
How is everyone else doing? Any more updates??? I need to read back from yesterday and cathch up.
