It's been over six months since my wife filed her i-130 for me. The NOA1 date is September 14, 2016. She's American / Canadian. I'm Canadian. We live together in Niagara Falls, Ontario. We want to move to Orlando, Florida to, among other reasons, benefit her health.
She called to follow up with them earlier this week. Apparently, there have been some delays in their processing (no kidding!) since then, but they should be getting around to it any time now. She pointed out she also filed an I-129 for me. The I-129 / K-3 was suggested by none other than a U.S. immigration officer at the Rainbow Bridge in Niagara Falls, N.Y. who told my wife and I that I would be in the U.S. "inside of a month." This was in late September. Of course, my fellow VisaJourney members know what a waste of time that was.
The nice man at the USCIS call center told my wife the K-3 was an employer petition and had nothing to do with a spousal petition.
My wife also asked if I could drive a U-haul truck with her and her belongings down to Florida - and then I would fly back to Ontario - in order to move her down there to comply with the domicile requirement. His response? Maybe. Under certain circumstances. With permission. Call the consulate - any consulate - and ask them.
Come on! Really?
Absolutely un-flipping believable.
