Just joined tonight.....
Primarily because I'm just angry and upset about this process of getting a visa for my fiance. I'm a US citizen living in Iowa - mid fifties years old. I applied for a K1 visa for my fiance from China. She spent about 4 months living with me last year (2013). She was on a B1 visa at the time, and we both decided it best we go through the proper approach and wait until she returned to China to file and not get married. We had both heard that if we did that, it could be construed as visa fraud. We did that, we waited until she returned home to China and only then did we file and receive the USCIS NOA1 - Feb 27, 2014. Then a few months later I got the dreaded RFE. We had to re-submit, and get new translations for her divorce in China, also we got a "no re-marriage" certificate, translated just to be safe also. Also, I had two prior filings, but they both fell through before embassy interviews, the relationships had simply gone south. The RFE asked me to also indicate to ask for a waiver. I did and explained those two prior K1's which fell through before any visa was ever even issued. I had written letters in both cases to Immigration department stopping them of my own volition. However, one of those two were over ten years old, and I had lost all the paperwork. I supplied as much evidence as I had in my files.
USCIS received my RFE response on March 15, 2014. It's past the 5 month advertised average for NOA2, and "My Case Status" has the following verbiage: "you should expect to receive a written decision or written update within 60 days of the date....". Were well past that also...
My question for you fine bunch of folks, who have gone through or are going through this "Journey" - When do i start to really wonder? By wonder I mean wonder if I'll ever get a K1 visa? I'm loosing hope, and simply put feel like I'm out of options. I realize my case is complicated, but what could be holding this up? Maybe I'm getting my expectations to high?
I've filed a "Service Request" to no avail, they simply regurgitated the same thing I read on "My Case Status". I've called level 2 support a couple of times - they all tell me nothing, not what's holding up my case, not where it's at or even if it's being actively worked on or not. Are these not cogent questions to ask? Am I crazy for wanting to know?
I've already contacted my congressman, not sure beyond that what else I can do to spur these people to do their job in a timely manner.
Advice is welcome - going out of my wits wondering.
