Friday November 20, 2009-Lawyer Consultation

Today was mostly cloudy and rainy but not cold but I managed to get my walk in without being rained on. In fact November so far has been pretty nice weather. It could be so much worse!

After breakfast I went out to get some groceries and things but was back in time for lunch.

My telephone consultation with the lawyer in Buffalo was for 3 p.m. He says there are two ways to go about this. I can forget about the deportation and just apply to be allowed back into the US, or we can apply to have the deportation set aside and terminated. If that goes through I won't have to go to Buffalo to appear.

The lawyer will get all the information needed, prepare affidavits to prove we have been in Canada all this time and I'll have to get some paperwork together to show proof of our residing in Canada as well. At the point we're not sure how long we have to prove that we've lived here.

Now that he has a hefty retainer fee, he's ready to get moving on it.

Nancy managed another full day at work!

  3. Seems like you are finally getting somewhere. Glad you found a lawyer that will at least help you solve this problem.

  4. Maybe you'll get out of here before winter really hits hard. Now to figure out how to get me

  5. Sounds like this is going to get worked out for you Sandra - just a lot of red tape to get untangled.
