I will brainstorm at my desk instead of this mind-numbing nonsense that I do for a living. <3

Take a walk and alot of deep breaths.

Defeatism is a tough nut to crack, but I am here to shake you out of it!

I am guessing you weren't able to cancel the application because the file had already been opened, right?

You've really got nothing to lose if you do appeal.

Time maybe, but better than not appealing!

How's your partner taking it? What are their thoughts?

He's not so well mlh. Actually, he's taking it worse than I am.

Also I would add as much new information as possible to an appeal and make it very clear that 4 days simply was not enough time to procure documents and perhaps even without new sole custody papers but further details, letters, info, would be enough to help the appeal win?

Im going to try and do what I can with the helpful advice of mlh, Like I told her the entry clearance officer that phoned me said and I quote " must be court ordered sole custody papers, no notarized letters" So if thats what they are only willing to accept from me than thats what I have to TRY and get

In some ways, I believe that they were probably referring to the court ordered document as absolute proof (in place of what they had in front of them-to make a decision on the spot about the open file), but there are other ways that they are willing to look at each individual case depending on the supporting evidence.

It is alot harder when the kids are younger, I am sure.

Clearly, this wasn't a requirement for us and probably because of the evidence we were able to supply in addition to my sworn statement, etc.

Let us know what you are able to gather along the way and if I can think of anything else-I will be in touch.

P.S. Let your partner know we are in your corner and trying to help you get to him!
