Waiver Processing Times

I realized it is the end of July and I have only blogged once!  I think I've been trying to figure out what I want this blog to be, but I need to just keep being myself and let whatever comes out be how it is :)

Well I have GOOD NEWS!  Yay!  I was checking my immigration forum the day before yesterday and something signficant was posted.  The U.S. Embassy website for El Salvador updates their site for which month or months they are currently processing visa waivers.  The date posted on the website has been at April 2010 for a while now.  BUT it is now changed to OCTOBER 2010!!  This is huge for us because our waiver was submitted in October 2010.

Now this doesn't mean we are going to be getting approved in the next week or anything, but it's a big step.  Our case was submitted at the end of October so we probably have to wait a while.  I was told on visit to the Embassy in May that October was their biggest month for waiver submission so they will be working on October for a while.  Even if that is the case, at least they are working on October.

I now have to get all my additional evidence sent over to El Salvador ASAP.  I have decided to put it together and send it myself as to speed along the process rather than involving my attorney.  I will send her copies as well so she knows what I have done.  I am just waiting on one thing to come in the mail so I can use it as evidence.  I plan on faxing and emailing the documents and then I will call to confirm they received them and also can check on our case at that time.

This is all so exciting.  Eduardo could be home sooner than later.  I'm praying for that to be the case.  Please keep our family in your prayers for a speedy approval time :)
