Giving the Federal Government A Heads Up

Originally posted March 28, 2007 on our old Vox blog.

Last night we dropped our completed I-600A and a few other documents into the FedEx dropbox bound for the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services office here in Dallas. It turns out that when you plan on bringing someone from another country into your family, and by extension into the U.S., the federal government wants to know about it well in advance. This is understandable, especially considering the fact that we are counting on the federal government to make the child a citizen. Isn’t that nice of our government? We think so, and in light of that we are willing to send them a form, some birth certificates, a marriage license and a couple of money orders for processing and fingerprint checking (it turns out the federal government also wants to run a few background checks on anyone who says they want to bring the aforementioned someone into the country).

At any rate, it feels nice to have that first little chunk of paperwork submitted. At least until they call us and tell us we did something wrong, or a form is missing, or my (Scott’s) handwriting in completely illegible. In the mean time, we’ll gladly turn our attention to whatever is next on the list.
