Once I have alllll the documents notorized, I have to bring them to the secretary of state in St. Paul, MN and then they will charge me $5 per sheet to be apostillized.
To continue on with the fun, once I have that done at the secretary of state I have to pack myself and the kids into the car and drive all the way to Chicago and visit the Honduras Consulate where they will then do something with all the paperwork and of course take some cash or money order of only $300. Once they do what they have to do with the papers and put their stamps on everything, I have to then bring everything over to Honduras and from there they will have to tranlate the documents into Spanish at a charge. Then file things again and I've heard it takes about 4 months to be approved for residency but can take much longer too. Up to a year.
I'm hoping that once I'm done in Chicago, that the hardest part will be over- running around.
If you were wondering about our monkey boy- Brother Sprout, he's 1/2 Honduran, so gets out of this mess. He just gets to come along for the ride to Chicago.
This post was a mouthful. Did you get all that?
