they got a tote bag because it is a MIRACLE that someone secured a JFRV.
i got my fbi check back finally. i have my marriage license, and I have both translated. the teco office in the states said that i need to surrender my actual official marriage license to them AND have it notarized in the states... which is illegal. i actually flew back to the states to do it in person, and got nowhere with the teco office in los angeles. finally i just tried to get two notaries to do it anyway but they both said they absolutely cannot notarize a vital record... it is by its nature, notarized automatically. they also said that i should never give away my vital records, just for some office to keep the original. also, the la teco office also said that the fbi document must be authorized by the teco office in washington d.c. only and it will take about 30 days.
month six... still no jfrv. so yes, if you can actually pull this off, you should get a tote bag at the very least. :fume:
