We have had the usual Mexican confusion on our FM3 process.
Since FMTs only good for 180 days, Husband and the boys either have to cross the border twice before we move back to USA next summer or we have to get FM3s for them. We also have a vehicle with a 180 day permit and a cash deposit at the border. So we decide FM3 is best route.
Husband found a resource to help us with the process and started gathering all the necessary documentation. In several conversations, he verified that the our vehicle would be included. Right? Right.
Guess What? We sit down to finalize the submission last Friday and suddenly we can NOT include the vehicle. We must drive it back over the border at the same place we came over. Are you kidding? Well, there is no point in getting FM3s if we still have to cross border. We ask resource not to do anything till we get back to her.
Husband hits the internet in a fast and furious way. I hear a scream of delight! Husband found a local attorney who published an article on exactly how to get FM3 and vehicle extension done together. Husband calls her and sets up an appointment for today.
Husband meets Attorney this morning at 10am at Immigration. She needs copies of ALL pages of passport. Husband dashes home, makes copies and picks up me. We go back to Immigration. Attorney has all the letters typed with our specifics ready for signature and she gives us explicit instructions on what to do at bank. We have to go to airport so Attorney heads to bank for us. Oh, did I mention she is "a looker" - I mean really attractive. Nice, smart, organized and beautiful. Husband's lucky day!
Husband drops me off at airport and heads back to Immigration to finish applications. Wish us luck.
