    Hello, I have been interviewed for my K1 visa on February 2017. My Fianc and I have a legitimate relationship and we spent the last year together we are madly in love and attached to each other, she came to Lebanon when she was young and I met her few years ago and we got engaged about a year ago. I had tons of proof, photos together with family, with friends, and when she travelled to the US to file the petition we started video chatting so I brought evidence to that to the Embassy, along with chat logs when she was in Lebanon along with chat logs after she travelled, everything is real and we are honest about our intentions, after the interview the consular officer hands me a paper 221(g) stating that they need the petitioner's civil record, original and translated, 2 days later, I dropped the document at the Embassy along with the letter and our case has been pending administrative processing since then and no matter how many emails we send, phone calls, congress inquiries, we still get the same answer that they will contact me when the processing is complete, it has been 80 days since the interview date and still administrative processing, has anyone been through this? It is very devastating for us. Any guides will be greatly appreciated.

    Medical Exam- Harmful Behaviour?

    I don't know whether or not this is a common question from those applying for a Green Card but I hope someone can answer my question (preferably from experience) be it first or second hand.

    I have seem that "Harmful Behavior" (also categorized along side of "self-harm") can deem you inadmissible. I have a lot of very obvious self-harm scars on my arms. It's also very obvious that they are decades old, though. My lawyer has advised me to not disclose this unless they are noticed and I am asked about it. I otherwise, I appear perfectly normal and sane (lol). It was a mistake I made very young and unfortunately it's evidence is carried with me. I have no present mental health issues and I do not wish to disclose any past mental health issues during the exam.

    So what typically happens during this Medical Exam? Will I be required to wear a gown or will I just be able to wear long sleeves to cover my arms? If the scars are noticed would it be inappropriate for me to request that it not be documented in the exam?

    So after I got my NOA2 of approval the last month and was waiting for our case to be sent to NVC, we found that our USCIS status has changed a couple days ago to case reopened for reconsideration, and today the case changed to ( we mailed you a notice explaining our actions ) stating ;

    Your Case Status: Decision

    On April 26, 2017, we began reviewing your Form I129F, PETITION FOR FIANCE(E), We mailed you a notice informing you of the action we intend to take on your case. Please follow the instructions in the notice and submit any requested materials. If you do not receive your notice by May 10, 2017, please call Customer Service at 1-800-375-5283. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address.

    We have googled it and found that it's a NIOD and they intend to reject the petition . We are really confused and don't know what's happening, our petition was approved and now everything suddenly changed and going to be rejected.

    Does anyone have any infos about it ? Thanks all
