Our fingerprinting appointment wasn't till October 18. Someone suggested that we should try to go early. So this morning we headed off to our local CIS office. I had knots in my stomach.
This could save us 3 whole weeks.
We walked in, handed the guy our paperwork, I told him our appointment wasn't today, he said "no problem." That was it! We were in and out in less than 15 minutes. It seems as long as you have your paperwork they will take you. I guess it doesn't work in every location, but you might as well give it a shot.
