Received Packet 3: March 19 2003* I faxed Sydney upon online approval to ask them to send Pkt 3, so I could get a head start, was no problem at all for them to do this.
Ran into some Child Custodial problems just after this date. Have had to delay Visa process til problem resolved. Contacted Sydney Consulate and they were more than accomodating. Advised that if the petition expires prior to resolving issues, get my fiance to write a letter stating that he still wishes to marry me and have it faxed to Sydney Consulate, just prior to my K1 interview date. Typically I-129 f 's only have a use by date of 4 months from approval.
Sent Packet 3 forms: Sept 29 2003
K1 Interview Date: Nov 03 2003
* Visa Issuance Unsuccessful* due to a minor police report discrepancy. Consulate asked to retain my Passport, and sent me on my way to rectify discepancy.
