    Hi folks So my husband kept his ex colleaugue a a friend and have been chatting.on.and off on social networks for the past 12 yrs.We needed a sponsor and she agreed,she would gladly sponsor us.We sent her the I34 and she said she needs to speak to a lawyer first.I feel hopeless,is there anyway that I can assure her that we do have $50k we bringing to US? How do I assure her that.we will be able to look after ourselves? I looked through that form I understood why she.was feeling like she needs to speak to someone.Its really overwhelming.I need an advise cos people who have recently been interviewed in JHB are advising we get sponsors,money is no.longer that important but sponsor is.

    Hi Folks Firstly thank you for all your advise it has been helpful but guess what on Thursday,day after I posted the above question,my husband decided to just just let home affairs know that we cannot get a marriage record,he was told our marriage certificate is ready we can go pick it up in Cape Town Barrack street where we applied in March.I could not believe it and I decided I will not confirm to anyone until I.got the document in my hands.I got there 11 o clock this morning and left with my marriage unabridged certificate 45 minutes later.All details correct on it. So I have learnt that you can succesfully get, your documents by following up on them. For birth unabridged certificates do application and then give it 4 weeks max then follow up with the presidential line call center and Its crucial you explain to them.you travelling very.soon.Marriage unabridged certificates you need to.call the 0800 number for Home affairs call centre but presidential number can work as well if you not getting satisfactory results with the Home affairs call centre.So I think home affairs is improving their services ,also just be patient and dont be shy to call them. So glad that im done with home affairs now I have applied for police clearance on Thursday last week and they said we should receive them in 15 days so we waiting. [at]adventurer1 I understand about your suggestion about notarization of our docs,we will check it out,Thank you so much,Will keep you all up to date folks as to what happens till the end.

    I agree,the whole process is not cheap and you will not know until you have applied,before applying a person does not think or know half of the cost involved.At the end of the day it is a risk that I think its worth putting everything you have on line for.You are correct sj

    Hi Ade I am puzzled,I really thought it will be above 30's by now,I am trying to read the graphs from previous years and It is not helping me,I wish I can see numbers instead of graphs just to simplify the whole bulletin progress.The whole progress is becoming totally difficult to estimate.Lets just hangon "until the last ball sink"nothing was promised we are just taking a gamble.
