DCFS Letter of Endorsement

We had our home study update done in June and were waiting for DCFS to issue a letter of endorsement, so we could file for our free renewal of the 171-H. Well, our agency, finally received the letter of endorsement and will mail it to us along with the instructions so we can file for our renewal. The renewal can't be filed any earlier than 90 days before the expiration of the 171-H and today marks the 90th day before expiration. So hopefully, we will receive the letter from CHI in the next day or 2 and I'll be able to immediately send for the renewal to CIS. Then our social worker says it takes CIS 2-3 weeks to process it and then a week later, we should get it in the mail. We'll also need to get our fingerprints redone (like they've changed!!!) I will be posting an update soon about our adoption. I wrote it out the other day on the way home from work and just need to find the time top type it.

I'm glad they received the letter of endorsement. Hopefully we'll see some movement.

And, I know what you mean about the fingerprints-crazy you have to get them redone, huh?!

I'm looking forward to the next post.

Why does all of this fingerprinting and I600a stuff have to be such a PITA?!?! Ugh. We're dealing with some of it, too, and it makes my head hurt. I'm looking forward to your update, as I've been wondering how you're dong.

I'm also looking forward to hearing what your plans are.

Hi, did you let fingerprints expire before refiling your 171H? Ours expire this March but our 171 is good until August. Wasn't sure how that works. Also, how early did you start? Could you e-mail me. kris_warner@yahoo.com
