So until that is approved I cannot submit our Dossier even though I have everything together and with one trip to the notary it would be ready to go! Argh.
Currently we are awaiting approval from Homeland Security. Our I600A form was submitted a few weeks ago and we received confirmation that they are processing our paperwork. The estimated time for this step seems to vary greatly which has been a point of frustration for us. I thought it would only take a few days, then our adoption agency said it would take 60-90 days but the letter we got from Homeland gave us the range of 6 months- 1 year. I am trying to find out why it may take that long or if that is just a way they give themselves a lot of leeway. So far I have no answers.
