Please respect that this is strictly a TIMELINE THREAD ONLY. Any question posts have been and will be removed.
(Casa, not CR001)
Please don't send me PMs asking for immigration advice on posts that are on the open forum. If I haven't responded there, it's because I don't have the answer. I'm a moderator, not a legal professional.
