Problems with the Chicago consulate

The consulate people are not very helpful and will not accept my mom's paperwork. So the only alternative would be to go to Romania in person and possibly spend months doing the red tape.

However, we just hired a lawyer and things seem to be going well. We're putting the Hague Apostile on everything which mean Romania has no choice but to accept it. There's no Hague Convention here in Peru, so I'm sending everythign to my mom to get it done in the States. Getting a police report here is no big deal, it woudl only take a couple days.

My mother is a Romanian national and citizen, they just refuse to recognise this.

Contract signed and sealed

Well, I did it. I signed the contract and posted it to my lawyer. Also sent the first payment of fees.

Good news, I contacted the embassy and they do translations and legalisations all there, so I won't have to be running all around Lima.

My mom's halfway through with the documents there in the USA, only needs the Apostille, then I have to get a police report and get an Apostille for that. Then we'll have all the docs we need to start the process. Which hopefully won't take longer than six months or a year at most.

Will be signing contract with lawyer

I'll be signing the contract with my lawyer this week. I'm excited to get the ball rolling. All these years we've been getting the runaround with the Chicago Consulate. It seems like things will finally start falling into place.

My head's spinning looking at all the documents that I have to get. It's not that much, but there's lots of certifications, notarisations, and authentications. Plus, I'm in Peru, but the majority of the documents are in the US, so I'm having my mom help me.

Seems like my passport will be a problem. I have to get it translated from English to Romanian, I just don't know if I can find a translator here in Peru. i have a feeling that I'll have to go from English to Spanish to Romanian. But maybe the Romanian Embassy will know someone who can go directly from English to Romanian.
