The moderators have already made the changes for you.

However, someone else had already created a thread for September, so hopefully both can be merged so it's not confusing for the new people joining VJ and so you all, September filers, can share your experience.

Good luck!

Hi All!

 

I am planning to file a k1 petition for my fiance in Philippines. However I am worried it would get deny for the following reason;

I became a US citizen thru my parents when I was 17 y/o, then when back to Philippines when I was 19 y/o.

I met my fiance there while studying/working, I just came back here in the US last Sep 3, 2017 (now I'm 26 y/o). Would my petition be denied since I am not yet 'domicile' here?


Thanks in advance.

Hi everyone! I applied for my K1 Visa on November of 2016 and it was approved on February of 2017. I'm here because I decided to record a video telling my k1 journey. I'm from Venezuela so the video is in Spanish. But hope I can at least help those Latin people in here :)

Our petition was received on September 6. I check literally every day not knowing if one day I’ll see the golden ticket to the next step. I’ve learned there’s really no true waiting period. So many people have different responses. Some wait a month, some two some more than 6. I’m trying to be patient. I was fortunate enough to spend 6 months with my fiancé in his home country and I loved it. I went back two weeks ago for a short two week trip and I’ll probably go again if we don’t hear back in the next 30 days. We agreed to put each other first no matter what. Just seems to never get easier when saying goodbye in the airport though :( 

NOA1 TO NOA2 is running 5 to 6 month average right now so sit back relax and enjoy the ride.

Any updates from anyone? It's been 86 days since they have received our petition. I'm currently visiting my fiancé for the second time during this waiting period but I go home on a December 4th. We prettt much are hoping that we hear back within a 4 month time frame because I really haven't heard of a 6 month waiting period unless people were missing paperwork. I paid extra for rapid visa. Without them I'd be getting RFE after another. You'd be surprised what you'll miss that they caught for me several times. Worth the extra few hundred to ensure all paperwork is accurate but I guess we shall see! 

NOA1 to NOA2  is now ranging 6 to 7 months now what has hurt it all is the mass of filers this year which has created a backlog and then also rhe holiday season's

Unfortunately it is. Most people are getting around 170-190 days

 

Well get ready to hearing that 6 month period without missing papers a lot

I don't know where anyone gets their information and I'm not saying it to be rude but, the answers between people are so different. And you won't have any answers when calling in general. So how are people finding this information out? I have only read of people waiting between 4-5 the most. Any longer folks were missing something as simple as prior divorce papers. So just curious as to how your information is accurate?

Spend a little time here.  @The Squirrel, @Naes, @Shoegum, @vocaledge all run scans of USCIS data.  If you hear something from them it is the truth.  Yes there is a lot of bad information here but 170 to 190 is a very educated guess.  There are still people in May who are at the 220 mark.  The days of a 4 month approval are very long gone.  I am at day 178 today and I am hoping that I will hear something by next week.  It is the current situation but the names above are the ones that will have the most comprehensive information.  They put the information online here so you can even do your own calculations and come to your own conclusions.  Good luck on your journey and stop by the June forum and read up on things.  It is very busy there.
