arrowFor interview - Unsure of city hall ceremony date but must answer on form

Hi everyone,


My fiance and I are getting ready for him to apply for his interview, one of the questions he had to answer (with a specific date) was what date we were planning on getting married. Well, we want to get legally married as soon as he arrives and then our wedding will be in July. Since we won't know when he can arrive until after the interview, and will have to schedule it at city hall in San Francisco (which fills up quickly) we don't know the exact date of the city hall ceremony. Has anyone else been in this situation, and what did you put down on the form? TIA


Edit: at SFCH you can only arrange the ceremony 90 days in advance so I can't hold a date, especially before we have his interview set

So I have been happily in the US since June, got married to my husband at the end of July, and sent off my AOS on the 18th of august. Today however, we received a letter, or rather my husband, from USCIS. It says 




This notice is in reference to for I-129F, Petition for and alien Fiance, filed pursuant to Section 101(A)(15)(K) if the Immigration and Nationality Act, as amended. The petition was approved and was forwarded abroad to a United Stated Embassy/Consulate with a validity of four months. Subsequently, the petition has been returned to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) with the finding that the beneficiary was not issued the requested K-1 visa. Since the period of validity has now expired the petition will not be re-validated. Therefore, in accordance with 8 C.F.R. 214.4 (k)(5), all USCIS action on this petition is concluded as of the date of this notice. However, the petitioner may choose to file a new Form I-129F, Petition for an Alien Fiance, for the beneficary with fee. 



So I am more that a little cofused as this is dated the 19th of August, the day after we filed our AOS. But also because I clearly did get my K-1 visa. I don't know if I should be worried, or really what to do. I rang the NCSC and they said once I get my noa1 for my AoS in the next 30 days that I shouldn't worry, But I am worried. Any thing I should do?

arrowSSN number through online DS-260

I applied for my SSN while submitted the DS-260 form. According the NVC I should have received my social security number within 3 weeks after my arrival in the USA, however haven't received anything so far.


I contacted the SSA, but they forwarded me to one of their field offices. The SSA field office advised to apply for a SSN in their office because it could take months before Immigration processes the SSN. I am very surprised because this is much longer than the 3 weeks suggested by NVC and SSA websites. 


According to the field office, it would only take less than two weeks for them to process the SSN. I wonder why NVC advises immigrants to apply for a SSN through the DS-260 form if it takes months to process. Has anybody received the Social Security Card withing three weeks of arrival in the USA or did you all go into a field office?

arrow12 Days Since Notice of Readiness - Dublin

Hey VJers!


My fiance sent in his Notice of Readiness to the Dublin Embassy via email 12 days ago and still no word. :clock:  When we called last week, they said they would email us when it's ready but couldn't give us any information other than that, even if they had actually received it or not. It seems like others have gotten their dates within just a couple days, even those who have sent their notice in AFTER we have. 


Any ideas? Should we send it again? Is there somewhere we should call/email for an inquiry?


Thanks all!  :thumbs:
