Deportation 101

It's very true, I am getting deported in less than 48hrs :(

Here's the full story. A few days into 2011, the hubs came home with his head a little low and said he had bad news. I never enjoy those 2 words "bad" & "news" do not go together. He proceeded to tell me that he had met with the general manager of his hockey team. I wasn't quite sure where this was going. He tells me that my visa got rejected and that I am DEPORTED!! **Breath**

A few months ago I traveled to the Czech Embassy in Bratislava, Slovakia. I was told that they didn't believe my marriage certificate was real. Whoooa! The next step was to travel to the US Embassy in Prague for them to confirm that my marriage certificate was not a fraud. So I did. The US Embassy attached a letter to my marriage certificate, making these two BIG holes in it. I was not a happy camper. The letter wasn't promising but the team thought it would work. It said something along the lines of "the document appears to be real but we aren't sure". Oh boy! Then we met with the police department in hopes to get an extension. No luck.

The bottom line is that I'm leaving. The team has tried everything. Once I'm back in Florida, I must meet with the Czech Embassy in Orlando to see the status of my permission to return. The worst part is being apart from Adam. Totally stinks! I'll keep you posted. Have a good week everyone!
