I just want to lay my head down and cry.
This carte de Séjour crap is really pushing me over the edge.
A letter arrived yesterday (exactly one month after the card's expiration date, I might add) from the sous-préfecture stating that they need all sorts of extra papers, more photos, copies of my husband's carte de séjour (which they already have), tax returns for 2005 and 2006 and a livret de famille.
A livret de famille is a family record book. Americans don't have a family record book. And they already have numerous copies of our marriage and birth certificates.
