I have already made two trips to Austin to get revised documents apostilled and sent to Russia to rejoin our dossier in progress. Today I got an email from our dossier specialist saying that the team in Russia, while translating the documents, found a typo. Yes, it seems, according to this document, that we were cleared through a criminal background check as of November 2011. Which unless someone invented time travel and tested it out on us, is highly unlikely.
SOOOooooOOOOoooOOOo…. I may have to run back up there again. For the third time in a little over a month. However I am waiting to hear back from our local agency that made the typo. They will reissue the document and have the ability to notarize this one themselves. So that saves a late-night trip to the bank with Josh on his way home from work. AND our agency is In Austin so I am wondering if they can just get it apostilled for us? Maybe?? I think they can’t but it’s worth asking, right? Argh. We’ll see. Hopefully they hurry it up and I find out if this is cause for another road trip by tomorrow.
And for those of you bad-mouthing our agency for making the typo, it’s not all their fault. I re-checked that entire pages-long document at least four times myself and I never noticed that. It’s just how it goes. I’m just hoping we don’t get it all fixed only for them to find another typo within the same long document.
Patience is a virtue! And when you’re not feeling patient you’re gaining character and yadda, yadda, yadda.
