Husband and i are together after this long process

I didn't know about VJ and the help from this community


If this can help anyone we got our SS card in 11 days and the green card came today (exactly 1 month from the day he arrived)

the total time from start to finish took 13 months +/- a few days


Would like to know a few things

I have been reading some posts and see a lot of initials such as AOS, RFE, etc.

not knowing your site, is there a place here you tell what all these  imean?  I have searched and don't see a spot that ididenties any

arrow45 Days for Notice?

I learned about requesting expedited processing over the phone, so I called and did that. My question is not about expedited processing however.

About an hour after I got my request, I got an email that said:

We have received your request to expedite the decision on your petition. Your case has already been reviewed by an adjudicating officer and a decision or notice of further action on your petition will be delivered to you within 45 days.
We hope this information is helpful to you.

So it seems someone has already made a decision but it will take 45 days to be notified? I was thinking when they make a decision they would notify right away?

Is there something I am missing, or misunderstanding?

arrowK1 Status Question

Please forgive me if I should have found this answer somewhere else.

I have checked our status online, Received and Pending. So I started checking the numbers before our receipt number, which I learned how to do here. The number immediately before ours shows the same status. But the number before that one shows more evidence requested. And the one before that shows case approved!

So does that mean they are close to processing our application and moving to the next step? Or is there no rhyme or reason, cases not necessarily processed in order? I read somewhere that applications are put in a big box, taken off a shelf, and pulled from the box kind of randomly. So processed in somewhat but not precise numerical order.

Any insight? It seems hopeful and positive, that just 2 application numbers before ours they have had some action, and 3 numbers before ours they were approved.

arrowConfused immunization/medical...

Hey everyone! 


I read the post Immunizations. DS-3025 or I-693? pinned on a thread and am still confused. How do we know if my fiancé was given a DS-3025 and what was marked off on it? POE took his sealed medical envelope. We have an appointment tomorrow with a civil surgeon for needed shots, but were wondering if he was given the blank DS-3025 or does the doctor have one to give or is it something we print ourselves and have the civil surgeon fill out. Will he receive another sealed envelope with just the DS-3025 in it to send with AOS? From what i read we don't need a I-693 since his K-1 medical was done overseas, right?



If we don't need the I-693 then can someone explain the following please:


(2) Even if a new medical examination is not required, you must still show proof that you complied with the vaccination requirements.  If the vaccination record (DS 3025) was not properly completed and included as part of the original overseas medical examination report, you will have to have the Part 7. Vaccination Record completed by a designated civil surgeon.  In this case, you must submit Parts 1., 2., 4., and 7. of Form I-693.


So according to this since DS-3025 wasn't included in original submission of medical to POE, then we do need to submit form I-693 again for Parts 1.,2.,4., and 7? what the heck are those and were do we get all these forms??



​Please help me…. Awwww so many questions and not enough time off work to get stuff done…losing my mind.


thank you, im always grateful for all your help! I love visajourney mucho!!!

arrow693 Appointment

We are at the medical appointment for medical exam and completing the form 693. My wife came in on a K1 visa and we understand that we don't need a full exam. The doctor is saying she can't sign part 5 because she didn't give us a medical exam. Is that a problem or should she do that? Also, they are not testing for tuberculosis on the vaccines and she hasn't been tested either here or Ecuador. Problem? Any help greatly appreciated!
