I-800A Is On It's Way!!!
Today I was finally able to send our I-800A to USCIS!!! (for those of you familiar with the process the I-800A replaces the I-600A under the new Hague regulations). Now we keep our fingers, and toes, crossed that USCIS will not reject the application and/or the home study. Our adoption agency was very careful about trying to make sure the home study meets all the new requirements, and our social worker was very good about making all the necessary changes. Hopefully, it was enough! Next, we wait for a fingerprint appointment. We will hopefully receive approval from CIS within the next thirty days. That is how long they are saying they hope to be able turn things around. Keep in mind that it's May 23rd and there haven't been any approvals of applications filed since April 1st. Hopefully there will be no problems and they'll get ours done within the 30 days!
