Recommended Posts

Hi VJers:


I am here some months ago and reading every day all your comments. I can say this is a great group of people, trying to help each other, that´s awesome. I´m so glad to be part of this site.


My husband is US citizen, he lives in California, and I´m Peruvian. We are together the last 4 years and we got married at the beginning of December 2014 here in Lima.


We are at the I-130 process. Our NOA1 date is March 4th and is on Nebraska NSC.


I have 2 questions and I would appreciate so much your help:


1st question:

I see on Inmigration Timelines that California Service Center CSC is the faster, I see peruvian people that started the K1 Visa on March 2015 and today is the interview in USA Embassy in Peru !.


So, somebody know if we can ask to the NSC to transfer our case to CSC?

My husband will be here in Peru on July 15th, and I have a ticket to visit him on October 3rd (because his birthday is Oct 5th) and I will go only for 6 days because these days off are part of my vacation and I need to go back to work.


2nd question:

What can I say when I arrive to LAX, any phrase or explanation, I want Migration officials be sure that I won´t stay, we are very respectful of the laws and we don´t want to do something out of place. I will wait in my country to finish the process of our CR1. But also I want to be with my husband in that special day to prepare a lovely suprise for him.


Thank you so much for the answers.

Jovi
