I now have time to breath again
I also have my own freaking biography written now!
Our time line is this,
In march we send off for an application to extend my visitors permit
April we send everything off in April (the lawyers are now doing their thing, police checks, photos and filling out the official forms and such)
12-16 weeks after the application is sent in, we get our "letter of acknowledgment"
Then we can apply for the work permit that takes 6 weeks
6-18 months from the FIRST application we should have an answer about the application.
then I should be free and clear!!!!!
Kyle and I are planning on coming home for Christmas. My Lawyer told me he is advising against it but I'm seeing my niece this Christmas come hell or high water!
Well that and I desperately need a good Christmas party and a good coffee!
By the time we leave at Christmas I should have my acknowledgment letter AND my work permit to help me get back into the country.
Only 324 days until I should be back in the NZ!
Expect a whopping party when I get back people!
