Makes complete sense Heidi. These people often give you the run around. Glad you've finally got it sorted though. I am awaiting Alicias passport and then i can get all our bits certified so it'll be interesting to see how i get on.
I am in the process of trying to get a stat declaration sorted out which i have to get for taking Alicia out the country, I'm not quite there yet but i now believe i can write it myself and get a solicitor to sign and stamp it for a lot cheaper. Otherwise if they write it i've been told it would be another £200-£400.
How odd and bloody annoying If they told you it would be free then it should be free. Also I was told a long time ago that a Justice of the Peace cannot charge for this service. We had all our skill assessment stuff done without charge without a problem.

Hi, I took all the documents I wanted certifying to my local solicitor I left them with the receptionist and said I wanted 2 copies of each and I returned 2 hours later and they charged me £10 which I thought quite good, their paper and their printer ink (skin flint or what).
We got ours done in by gardai in ireland for nothing done about 30, asked if they wanted a donation to their fund and got told it was part of their job was well impressed
The PSNI did some of ours as well, same story as the Gardai...part of the job.
