Title: 9 months - WOW!!! :)
Post by: SusanJ on May 10, 2010, 09:44:23 am
Ok, so was looking for our original "progress" post but seems I've made a few so thought I'd start a new one.
Last I told you, we had to apply for a police clearance certificate for me from Portugal (even though I've never lived there and haven't been there in about 13 years!!). That was beginning of March. We got word from the consulate that it had arrived on Thursday evening and the letter arrived today in the post!!  :yippee: :yippee:

We emailed our case officer on the weekend and let him know - and asked if there was anything else they needed from us. He replied today and just asked that we submit a the latest payslip for  my husband and that "a decision regarding our application would be made shortly after receiving these documents"

I'm suddenly a more than a little nervous!! Logic tells me there's NO reason for us to be declined. But having seen some other stories on this forum, I can't help but feel a little anxious so close to the line. :sweat:

Anyway, I'll keep my faith in this path that is right for us. We've come SOOO far, and we've sacrificed SOOOO much - it just has to be decided in the next few days!

Will let you guys know when I've heard back.

Cheers!
Susan

Don't want to get your hopes up, but just from my experience, if they ask for that payslip at the end and say what they said, could be that the decision is going to come very very soon.

Holding thumbs for you!!!

Oh no.  That means I'll have to get one from the Philippines and THAT is going to be a mission.
