Our birth certificates, marriage certificate, letters of employment, local criminal record clearance letter, home study report, psychological exam report, medical recommendation letters, bank reference letter, letter to the Director of the IBESR, power of attorney, three letters of reference, are all currently being translated into French. Once that is done they will all need to be legalized.
These legalized documents combined with our already completed medical lab results for negative HIV, syphilis, and TB tests, three months of bank statements, three years of tax returns, individual photos, home photos, and copies of photo ID's, will make up our complete and final Dossier.
In the mean time, we are also working with the Department of Homeland Security, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. We have submitted our I-600A application along with our completed home study. We are scheduled to complete federal finger-printing next week in Nashville. Then we should be done with the United States requirements.
We hope to hand deliver our Dossier to our Attorney in Haiti in January. We have been told that it will take 8 months, "give or take", from the time we submit our Dossier, to get our girls home!
