Can you tell I am happy? My dossier is off to V at AAC! I am so happy to be done with it!
I had my medical appointment yesterday and we got the rest of our papers notarized, also. Then, last night I was emailing back and forth with V to make sure everything looked right. At about 8 PM she asked me if she had sent me the Power of Attorney documents. Oh, no! Now I have 3 more documents to get notarized before I go to the capital in the morning! I should have read my instructions closer because it said I would get those documents closer to when I submitted my dossier. For some reason I was thinking we were suppose to fill those out closer to travel. Since our printer at home does not print legibly enough, I put the documents on my thumb drive and went to my favorite place, FedExKinkos.
Then this morning, I went and got the documents notarized before I left to get everything apostilled. It was a beautiful day for an hour drive. I got there fine and gave my documents to the nice lady. She came back and said she could apostille all my documents except for one! For the copy of my doctor's license, the notary had just signed/dated and stamped it. Usually there is verbage that says something like 'I certify that this is a copy of the original' and then someone signs it. So, the notary is notarizing the signature. I am going to do another post of tips I have learned putting 2 dossiers together. Well, I was able to write up a document saying that I certify that it is a copy of the original and then attach it to the copy of the license. Then, they notarized it there and then apostilled it. There is always something, no matter how thorough you are. So, then about 20 minutes later, I had all my documents. I got back to my car and there was 1 minute left on my parking meter, perfect! I drove to another FedExKinkos, made copies of the apostilles and then shipped off everything to V. Then, drove an hour home.
