Well, for all intents and purposes anyway. I just have to show off my scars and tatoos to the powers that be. What am I talking about? Well, the approval of my FM2 of course!
Last September 9th I delivered all of the necessary paperwork to Immigration in Cancun and sat back to wait for approval. This year I was switching from FM3 status to FM2, one step closer to being a permanent resident and not having to deal with Immigration anymore at all.
I waited. And waited. I went to Cancun personally to check on the status of my application. I called the office every week. Nope, I was told, not yet. Check back again next week.
This went on until about 3 weeks ago when I got another form from them that said I had to resubmit all of the previously submitted information, plus a few more things. AND I had to do this within 10 days or risk being asked to leave the country. Now that scared the heck right out of me!
An emergency email to my good buds, Rivergirl and CancunCanuck for the name of the attorney they used and I was on my way to the approval that just came through. Thanks Girls! BTW, I have since learned that this particular attorney is a miracle worker and has represented many, many people here on Isla. I'll be using him in years to come also.
And, yes, B got his approval too, just earlier than I did for some reason. I am one happy camper at this moment!
