Will members please respect that this is a TIMELINE THREAD ONLY. Any question posts or discussions 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.
