So, I take a deep breath, and email the expediter my predicament...his advice, call UPS and have them re-route the package. Huge sigh! Seems rather simple now, thank goodness we had a professional in pocket! So I'll have the documents delivered to our hotel in Boise, will order a certified copy of marriage license to be mailed directly to the expediter, who then will take to Secretary of State for apostille, and it should be waiting for us when we get back to NC... Fingers crossed
We also have criminal background checks in process, that hopefully will be waiting for us when we get back, because we have to then send them to Raleigh to the Secretary of State for apostille. More hoops to jump through, and of course more opportunity for speed bumps, the good news is all the things we are doing here, is less we have to do when we get there, and it's MUCH easier here. The last of the hurdles will take place the last 10 days here in the states. Taking the dogs to the vet for vaccines and health certificate. We then have to take the health certificate to the USDA certified vet in Raleigh for his approval and stamp, Then have it translated and notarized, THEN take it to the Ecuadorean consulate in Atlanta for their blessing before we fly! ( ok, it's not really a blessing, but it feels that way) oh yeah, our appointment with the consulate...the day before we fly out! No pressure!! Deep breath, be flexible!
