My Family Crisis

Posted 01-20-2008 at 07:16 AM by screenamesuck
Hey guys, first of all I just want to say I really don't want to post this blog, but I really have no choice. I need to talk about my problem cause it is driving me crazy. I've been here a long time and most of you guys should know me pretty well to know I'm a pretty good guy. I need help and I need it bad. Here is my situation. My wife is Mexican and has to go back to Mexico for a pretty long time. The reason she is having to go back is because she is one of the few that is trying to do everything the right way. She is trying to finish up her citizenship. We've been working on it for the last 6 years and we're almost done. Well, the final part involves here going to Mexico for an appointment to get her Visa. Well this entire process is not as easy as you might think. It will involve her staying there for at least 5-6 months probably. We have a 5 year old son and she will have to keep him with her, because I will be unable to take care of him while I have to stay here and work. I will go down there with them to complete my part of the process, but then I'm coming back after that. My problem is, the last time I checked my account I was at -$300. I've ran into some big bills lately. We have to leave for Mexico on February 7th. Plane tickets to get all of us there and to get me back cost about a grand. The hotel for the first week will cost about $800. There is some paperwork we have to get that cost about $600 and she has to get some stuff done at the doctor that will cost around $200. Then we gotta have money for food and transportation, plus we have to pay for her mom to come up all the way up from the bottom of Mexico to the border to help take care of our son while we are at the appointment. Then we have to pay to get all of us back down to her house. I don't even know what bus fare cost for all of us. On top of that I still got all my monthly bills here at home I will have to take care of while they are gone, like car payment, phone bill, etc.... I just don't know what to do. I don't normally ask for help regardless of the situation, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do when family is involved. We HAVE to be there. If there is anyway you guys can help me out that would be great. I created a donation page on some site I found while searching google. It allows you to send money directly to my paypal account. Like I said earlier, I REALLY REALLY REALLY wish I didn't have to beg for help, but I have no choice. Anything would be great and whatever I don't have to use I will give to Trey to put towards something that we could maybe use for a prize or something in a future contest. I'm not in this to make money, I'm just trying to get my family to where they have to be. This whole situation is also why I don't visit as much as I normally do. I'm just to depressed to even post lately. I provided the link to the page I was talking about below. Thank you for taking the time to read this even if you can't help me out cause I just needed to get it off my chest. If you can donate I will find someway to show my thanks in the future. I'll give you some points and rep lol :thumb02:

So do you need the money before you go or after will do as well? Because you could just use your Visa on the trip and then work your ass off when you get back.

I honostly would have chipped in by I don't start my job till February, and it pays great so it wouldn't be too much trouble.

There are also those under the table ways of getting the Visa, and sometimes its cheaper than your trip.

Try finding cheaper hotels and modes of transportation, any other family she have that can do some help for you?

Well I hope it goes well dude, best of luck to ya, let me know if you need anyother help.

plazz- yeah I've been doing my research and thats about as cheap as it gets to do it the "right" way lol. I need money bad just to get them there cause if we don't have everything ready the day of the appointment then it could take months to years again to get another appointment and they'd be stuck there until then. My wife is really religious now and will not do anything the illegal way anymore. She has family there, but its all the way to the bottom of Mexico.

Damn man, thats awful. First off, best of luck for everything going on and God Bless.

Second, I get paid next week on Thursday and then I'll shoot some money your way. It won't be much cause I've got school to pay for, but I'm sure anything will help. Do NOT let me forget bro. Don't feel bad about shooting me a pm or anything cause I am definitely down for helping out.

Good luck man.

Well everything is still pretty much the same. You guys are awesome though. I didn't expect any feedback, but I was way wrong. I don't want anyone to help out if it will put them in a bind in return. I already feel bad enough lol. Some possible good news has come out of all this so far. I was under the impression that it would be 5-6 months most likely for them to return, but now I hear it could be around a month. No guarantee of course, but heres hoping.

Well, I went ahead and bought the tickets today. I checked on the price of them Sunday night and they were a little more than a grand and when I went to purchase them today they were $1353, ugh!!!! Sucks how they go up and down in the matter of days. Next up is securing the money for the hotel room which is as of right now lol $700. I currently am only at $500. Then I gotta get $600 more for paper work stuff and $200 for doctor stuff. Then money for bus fare and food. Then I gotta have money to pay my car payment, insurance, etc.... Man this is even more than I thought. If my tax money isn't here before I leave and if it isn't enough I guess I'll just contact one of the loan places. Once again I want to REALLY REALLY REALLY THANK the ones that have helped me already and thank you to everyone else with their kind words.

On a side note, I just found out today that my dad has 4, yes 4 kidney stones and will have to have surgery Wed. I can't believe they are making him wait that long.

Well, I've been super busy lately getting ready for the trip and I'm about to head out in the next few minutes to catch my flight. If it wasn't for you guys I wouldn't have been able to get the things done that I did. I'm still a ways off on what I need, but I think I can manage. I just gotta wait another month before I can start getting paychecks again. Anyways, I'll let you guys know when I get back and how the trip went. Hopefully I'll have some info on when my family can come back. Thank you very much for the help guys, it means so much.
