Alrighty then! I dropped off our packet of applications to DHS yesterday. I was told that up next is the background checks which may take up to two weeks. As they say in the military...hurry up and WAIT!
Thanks. So far, I've finished my portion of the forms. My wife and my mother-in-law is all that's left. I hope to have all the forms collected/notarized this week. I also spoke w/ the DHS folks here and they're cool with me dropping off my forms rather than mailing it.
