snag?

Yeah.

I was told (by DHS in Moscow) that all I had to do to receive my free I171H extension was to write them a letter and submit an updated homestudy.

I was told (by sw2) that it was fine for the homestudy to follow the request--that she has had that experience often and everything would be fine.

I was told (yesterday, via e-mail, after I'd checked in on things) that they had received my homestudy but it seemed that all my other paperwork had expired.

I told them (briefly) what I'd been told and what I'd done. And I asked if there was anything else I had to do.

I told them if there was further paperwork needed (didn't mention that hefty fee) to let me know, that I might cry a little bit (never hurts to pull that emotion card--lesson learned) and then would comply.

I'm waiting to be told the outcome.

Argh! Sending up a quick prayer for a compassionate bureaucrat!

Oh for Pete's sake! I HATE it when I rely on others who sound like they know what they are talking about and then they turn out to be wrong. Seems quite unfair, in my opinion.

I will also be shooting up a prayer or 10 for you on this one!

Sounds like my attempt to get my teaching certificate renewed.... slightly out-of-the-ordinary situation means that every person I talk to gives me DIFFERENT information.

Boy, good luck.... The frustration must be huge. I'm glad you are feeling better, though. A classroom of 10 students! How wonderful!

This process is maddening! I swear... the right hand never knows what the left hand is doing. Sending prayers your way.

AARGH!!!!! Not that I'd really wish bad things on anyone...but a visual of elephants stomping on the guilty parties *might* bring some satisfaction.

Ugh! Praying for your sanity.
