Okay, so we get the letter to go to Jacksonville our "local" field office only five HOURS away (!!!) The appt is 10:00 but it's an hour ahead of us so instead of leaving by 3 or 4 a.m. we went last night.
We got called in just about on time. The lady read down a list of documents and I handed them to her as she read off. When she said, "Marriage certificate and Richard's divorce decree" I about had a heart attack. Those were NOT on our list. But they were in the folder from PAP thank goodness.
So, we are in there less than ten minutes when she says, "You are our first case so I need to go over this with the supervisor." We went back out into the lobby and sat 50 minutes.
She comes back out and is not carrying certificates so I"m thinking, "Oh no. Some little thing is missing." Well, it wasn't and the decision was favorable and that's good.
But what is not good is that Jax has to send it all to Orlando to be processed. Then it goes back to Jax. Then all four of us take another day off and make another ten hour round trip because we all have to report back there to pick up the COCs.
But what annoys me is that Orlando is only two hours farther for us than Jax and we could have done this all in one trip and have walked out with the COCs. And today would have been their citizenship day. We won't even know when their day is until we see it printed on the COCs. And we could have snuck off to Disney too : )
We go right by Jeff's school/home when we go to Jax so we stopped to see him. We called ahead and the guy who runs the place said we can't do anymore drop in visits like that. We have to come only on visitation day and sit in the room with him to visit. Oh brother. I will be glad when he's done. We only left him here because he's so close to graduating under their program but would be a year or more from graduating here.
We went to Wendy's and then took him to Walmart shopping.
