We sent our case officer an email the other day and got an auto reply saying they're away until December 29. I would guess that they're all on Christmas break at the moment.

Mellie what has your Case Officer asked from you? You applied in April didn't you?

Heard from our CO on 9th of January. They have recommended we apply for the BC100 if we have enough evidence. Hopefully see an approval this or next month!

Next time I will see my partner will be 11th of March.

Hey Guys,

I have a question for you experts! My partner and I are very keen to submit our application (we have decided to go with online) and the last piece of the puzzle is his divorce certificate. It is finalised and the courts are just backed up over Christmas. Is it possible to apply without it and upload it once it arrives and explain this to the case officer? Or is this not a good idea and better to wait for the piece of paper?

Thanks guys!!!

Hi there,

My husband had to upload his divorce certificates and although we got most of our paperwork organised before submitting (including FBI checks and medicals), it took us a little while to upload it all. I think as long as it's on its way, just upload it when you can... it'll be a while before anyone looks or does anything to your casefile anyway.

Good luck and Merry Christmas!

LKimball, sorry for the delayed reply! My husband said that on the list of required documents for the sponsor, it says a police check could be required of the sponsor for any country where they've lived over 12 months. My husband has been living in the US for over 4 years, so he did the local police check in NY and the FBI one too just to be safe.

Since the FBI check especially takes so long, we didn't want to find out later than we needed it and have it hold everything up.

Currently over 14 weeks and nothing back from FBI yet...

We decided to take this route too since it is one of the less expense, fee-bearing pieces of evidence to provide, but the wait to receive it is a bit much.

The sponsor only needs a police check if there are minor children involved that aren't his/hers (i.e., the applicant's children from a former relationship).

Or even if they are his and hers together ( ie adopted). 8 weeks waiting on this FBI check we were told we didn't need... Then told we did.. Only 4-6 more weeks to go..
