Okay, I’ve read through the pack I’ve been sent. There doesn’t seem that much there to fill in as such, all perfectly seemingly straightforward. A lot to digest though. I’m glad I’ll be able to go through it again with Bill over in the States before I fill it in.
Hmm, judging by these forms it looks like I really should send off for my police check as soon as possible. The whole point of getting the forms now is that apparently I can file the forms at the same time Bill files his side of things so that when (if?!!) the petition is approved everything should already be in order and waiting to be processed at the American Embassy, London. However, it takes at least 40 days to process the police check and receive my certificate and I need to be able to tick a box to say that I have that in my possession before I send the Visa forms back.
I know it’ll probably take an age to get the petition sorted anyway but if I can avoid unnecessary delay I’ll be a lot happier.
Maybe I’ll pop into town later and take photocopies of all the required id documents so that I can sort that out this evening and get it in the post.
