Secret Pop Up Trip was a SUCCESS!!!!
« on: October 21, 2013, 12:13:35 pm »
Hello guys,

I did the highly recommended pop up trip. I went to Puerto Plata for 5 days and popped up on my fiancée Junior. He was sitting under a tree with his family talking and looking a hot mess!!!! :o  Every time that I visit him he always has his hair done and his best clothes on. His hair was not done and he had on some faded sweats. He looked like he was in shock/disbelief at first then he ran to hug me. The 5 days was just what we needed. He cooked, I ate. We went to the 27 waterfalls. We hung out with his family and friends. We went out dancing. We just enjoyed each others company. The 5 days went by too fast.  :'(  I was concerned about doing the pop up trip because I don't want him to feel as if I don't trust him. I trust him 100% and now 200%. I am more in love than before.  :loved:   My next trip will be in January for the wedding. Well that's all for now. I have to start reading the CR1 threads again to prepare myself for filing the papers.  :luv:

It's wonderful that your unanounced trip was successful, and don't feel bad about it. Take stock in the fact that you loved him enough to pop in on him and insure that your relationship was as important to him as it was to you. This also will go a long way in getting rid of the nagging questions that are in your head regarding his sincerity.. Now as you said, you can put all of your energy into getting married, and secure his visa!!

Congratulations!!

Thanks everyone  for replying to my post!!!
@Jstarebel- I feel a million% better about my relationship. Every time I tell people that I am in a long distance/international relationship I get the 3rd degree about him being faithful. So it feels good to know that he was doing what he said he was doing. I didn't feel like anything shady was going on or anything.

@Jenny-The paper doesn't say that it needs to be apostilled but I think that I should do it anyway just in case. I read that I can do it in my own state but where do I go?

Tamara better to be safe than sorry..

You need to order your birth certificate in Long form and then then send it in to be apostilled.  If you live in New York you send it to Albany..

Hey Jenny,

I live in Virginia but was born in Maryland. Where do I send mine?
You can go to the Secretary of State's office in your birth state. Here are the directions and link for Maryland, which is where you need to have it Apostilled:

Quote
How do I have documents certified?

Certifications may be completed by mail or in person. The cost is $5 per document. Please pay by U.S. check or U.S. money order made out to the Secretary of State. If you are having certifications done by mail, be certain to include
your check
a note telling which country the documents are going to
a stamped, self-addressed envelope.

The State/County document, (birth or death certificate, motor vehicle ownership certification, certification of status of criminal records, marriage certificates, divorce decree, etc.) with the seal and authorized signature of the department issuing the document, is taken to the Office of the Secretary of State, in Annapolis for certification. If you do not have a current copy, please call our office at 410-974-5521 to confirm that we can authenticate your document.

http://www.sos.state.md.us/certifications/faq.aspx

So you can do it by mail also, or you can drive to Annapolis and get it done right away. Hope this helps!

I don't know about Maryland, but most states turn them around in a day or two, plus then you have the mailing time.
