Thank you turquoise for your help, I'm going a little crazy here with the timeline. I won the appeal in march and all the file number says is that the file was received april 5. But does not state where the file was received!! Since then neither my husband or myself have heard anything. I can only use my file number for information, his B number does not seem to be working anymore. When I phoned immigration canada to inquire what the process was at first she said she has no record of the file being returned to the outland office, then she put me on hold and came back and said that after winning an appeal the file is transfered directly to the outland office and should be there now. I would love to email them directly but at this stage I'm terrifed of annoying anyone and having this whole process take longer. I really don't know what to do. I read somewhere on a forum that someone who's file had arrived after mine (in mississauga) as been notified via email upon receipt of the file in the outland office. Not after an appeal though, so I don't know if that makes any difference. How did you know that your file had been returned to Vienna? Thank you so much for any help that you can give me. I really really appreciate it!!!
kabisha, I filed an appeal november 2009 and had my hearing date jan 2011. They didn't believe the relationship
