Jose's going back to Ciudad Juarez!
Two months ago, our original attorney called us and said that policies have changed and Jose might be eligible for a new appointment. So we worked with her, and our new attorneys, and did all kinds of research and still weren't sure. Jose called the Consulate at the end of January about scheduling a new appointment and they let him put in the request, but said it would be 2-3 months before we got more information. Today, our original attorney (who we are using again, the San Francisco attorneys sucked) didn't seem to believe that Jose had been able to request an appointment over the phone. Jose, being awesome, called the Consulate back to confirm he had put in the appointment request and was told, to everyone's surprise, that his appointment is MARCH 29, 2011 at 7:15 AM.
That's three weeks away!
That's all we know at the moment. I assume there is a ton of work to do before the appointment, and I assume we can get it all done by then, but I really don't know.
We're going to keep the blog updated now, for reals.
