    Default BECOMING LEGAL OR WINGING IT?

    i ve gone over all the requirements over and over again .. getting everything from here in NYC then coming to then DR withing the time frame , paying the cash to a lawyer and then waiting for the authorities to drag their feet and pull me up for something I ve forgotten... I m thinking it may just be simpler to live there without papers and be done with it.. thoughts?

    Why did you start the process ?....because you felt it was the right thing to do .
    If everyone gave up at the first hurdle or two ...nothing would get accomplished .
    Stick with it.
    Just my opinion

    Just imagine how tough it is for foreigners to apply for residency in the USA and how long that takes. The process in the DR can be a little frustrating but that is all it is (that's why you use a lawyer). It's fairly straight forward, not terribly expensive relative to other countries and in the end, you can walk down the street and not have to worry about being thrown on a bus to go talk to a Judge.

    I've really only seen Hatians on the paddy wagon Cdn, to be perfectly honest. I mean, not that they don't have the token white guy once and a while. Maybe they'll be ramping up more.

    In the broader sense, I find it comforting that I do not need to worry about potential immigration woes or unexpected travel interruptions. Unlike some, I'm not quite so mobile and relocating somewhere else at a time not of my choosing would be quite the disruption in my daily life. Peace of mind with one of the few things I have some control over here in the DR, priceless.

    To each their own.

    If you feel you have to do it, do it. If not don’t. It’s not a must so up to you.

    Being turned back when one had planned on a 6-month stay is definitely not convenient. I would agree.
