Please give me a few minutes to review your question and I will be right with you with an answer. Sorry for any delay. I may have to do some research and at the same time I read and type fast, but not that fast! Thank you for your patience.

Hello, can you please let me know if any suggestions regarding my situation.
Expert:  Guillermo J. Senmartin, Esq. replied 12 months ago.

My apologies for the delay. Last night required some additional research as I was finding conflicting information and as I was doing that I had a family emergency. I am back on the question but I took the liberty of contacting the U.S. State Department directly in order to receive clarification. I am waiting for their response. I wish I could tell you how long they will take, but all they will say is that they will address the inquiry in the order it was received. I ask for a little patience to get the answer directly from the U.S. government.

Sorry about the last post. Please ignore it. I am still waiting to hear back from the government. I will let you know as soon as I hear something. Thank you for your patience.
