Second I-129F Petition
Posted 22 February 2012 - 08:27 AM
Our story goes like this... My fiance and I met back in 2007 whilst I was in the US on a student visa. I was there for close to 2 years and we were together pretty much throughout that time. Unfortunately there were some problems with my student visa sponsor and I had to return home to South Africa. A few months after my return we decided we'd like to get married and we filed the 1-129F petition. I was 20 at the time and coming from a very devout christian family, my parents would not give their blessing on the marriage as they believed i was too young and they had not known much about my fiance and his family. This caused lots of problems in our relationship and after 3 months we decided to seperate and attempt to move on. Low and behold a month or so later the I-129F petition was approved. I did not go to interview and nothing came of the petition. Throughout the past 4 years we have kept in touch but as friends. Around October last year we started getting a bit more romantic and we both realised that the spark was still there and very strong at that. My parents even admit that theyve known my heart was always with him and they gladly give their blessing now (they've met again a few times upon visiting the States). In Jan this year he sent me a ring with a beautiful proposal and a ticket to come visit in April. I of course said YES and even though we havent seen each other in quite a while I know in my heart this was always meant to be We plan to fill in a new I-129F when i get there in April but my question is will it be to our advantage or disadvantage that this is the 2nd time we're doing this? And is it in a bad light that the previous petiion was approvied but we didnt act upon it?
I know I've said a bunch but I wanted to give all the logistics.
Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

Another quick question- Would it be better in regards to processing times if we got married in April when I came to visit and then applied for a spousal visa instead of going the K1 route? Its been so long already, I'd really like to take the quickest route if there even is such a thing with immigration affairs.
