arrowEarly biometrics attempt at Boston ACS - Failed

Just wanted to share my experience at the Boston ACS this morning. I have my biometrics scheduled for Lawrence, MA on May 9th but decided to try to go early in Boston, since that's where I work. First I went to the wrong building - the ACS and the USCIS are different offices. When I got to the ACS, I explained politely to the security guard that I would like to have my biometrics taken since I would have to take a day off from work to go to Lawrence. He seemed sympathetic, but said he would have to ask his supervisor. 
The supervisor came out and I explained the same thing to him. Both of them asked me if I would have trouble making the May 9th appointment and I didn't lie: I wouldn't, but I would rather not have to take time off from work to do it (and from what I heard the Lawrence ACS is awful, but I didn't say that). The supervisor said that he couldn't help me today, but I could come back on May 9th to have it done in Boston instead of going to Lawrence. He even asked me if it was better in the morning or afternoon. 
In the end, he was really nice about it and signed the biometrics appointment sheet saying he said it was ok to have it done in Boston instead, and to show up around 8am when they open. 

I read in this forum and others that early appointments were no problem, so I was really surprised about the way this turned out. Did anybody have a similar experience? Should I try again before May 9th?

Hey everybody, I need help/advice!


My fiance has had her K1 visa issued and used it, she's here in the US. That's the good news.. She lost her passport which had the visa in it! so we have some qustions that I was hoping someone could help me with.

1st- She is trying to figure out how to get it replaced, she is Brazilian and we ae using the Houston consulate... we have filed a police report, so no questions i guess just any advice would be nice.

2nd- our wedding is in Hawaii, will she need the visa, or just the passport for travel? will her Brazilian ID work?

3rd- Adjustment of status... how will we go about this without the visa?

thanks in advance!

Good Afternoon, 


:unsure: I am in need of guidance on the process and procedures of the K3 visa. I am current active duty military stationed in Okinawa Japan. My spouse is a Brazilian National who is currently living with me. Once we file the I 130 and we eventually prepare for the interview process, does she need to return to Brazil for the interview or can she do the interview in Japan? Thanks for any information you can provide.

arrowBrazil Processing Times for I-601 Waiver - Help
April 21, 2014, 12:42 am Last comment by jrprince

I have a question about the I-601 waiver,
We had an interview for the K-1 visa on January 14th, and the consul said, “we were approved for the K-1 Visa, but we needed to file the I-601 waiver”.

We filed the I-601 waiver in March, and on April 16th we received the I-797C (the notice date is 04-08-2014). It told us that our case was sent to Nebraska visa center, and online our case status shows that we are in the initial review.

So my question is;
1) can the USCIS approve the I-601 sooner than the 4 to 5 months processing times they are showing, and;
2) does it follow any kind of order to be processed?

The reason I ask is because, I have been seeing posts about how the USCIS is currently going through the I-601 waivers that were filed in October 2013. But most of these posts were from people living in Mexico.
Does it make a difference if you are from another country filing the I-601?

It is hard to find right informations about how it works for Brazil cases. I have searched all the Immigrate2US website.

I appreciate any help to these question I have, thank you.
