Does anyone have an idea how long it is taking to get approval of permanent residence status following application in the US i.e. how long should we plan on staying in Cozumel to get the process finalized before we can return to the US. We are considering doing this in July - hopefully some officials are still on the job then.

Mine took four weeks - but I had an attorney and someone to translate for me.

Oh - and it takes 10 days from when your residency is approved to get your card, and sign the final paper. Good luck.

When the wife and I did the fingerprint interview thing, we got the cards within days. The missus actually arrived on the 3rd and met the attorney on the 4th and 5th finishing the in-country paper work. The paper didn't hit the office until the 8th. She did the interview on Wed the 17th and picked up the card on Friday 19th. We did have attorney Gretchen do ours. She knows everyone and besides doing all the work, she can finesse things through the system. I think if I had a few more days in December I could have done it on one trip. We were up against the Christmas closure and couldn't get there sooner.
I did my interview last month on February 8th and picked up my card on February 12th.
As far as I know, I think all our stuff went to Cancun as well.

It sounds like it might be a good idea to have a lawyer facilitate things at the Cozumel end. We had Monica Sauza help us without FM3 application a few years ago (expired) and she was very good. So it might be a good investment to make sure that there are no hangups with the local officials once we get to that point. Thanks for the advice.

The big obstacle is avoiding holidays. Christmas and NY's is combined, and it is long.

The most important thing in life is not knowing everything, it's having the phone number of somebody who does!
