Hello, I am an American citizen living here in the U.S. and am planning on getting married in Kenya since this is where my fiance lives and so that her family can attend the wedding. Is a K-3 visa the best and most efficient way to go? We don't want to do the K-1 visa since her family would not be able to travel to the States. I am hoping by joining this forum now I will learn from the experience of others and stop myself from making unnecessary mistakes. Any advice to a newbee would be greatly appreciated!!

arrowI-797 Issue - Medical Exam Issue

Please help!!  


My fiancee went for her medical....


In 2007 she got infected with TB, but was treated and has been healthy for a long time.  


During her medical they told her, her chest x-ray was abnormal and now she needs to be tested (which I'm 99.9% sure she will be fine).  It takes 60 days for the test results.  So we won't know anything until Nov. 9th at the earliest.  


The issue is that her I-797 will expire on Nov. 16th.  Unfortunately you can only schedule an interview a month I had to reschedule for Oct...then in Oct, I will schedule, hopefully for Nov. 11th.  


Do I need to worry about the I-797 expiring??? And if so, how can I get that extended????

I'm really nervous, that my Fiancee' and I have made it this far and we may have an issue with the I-134.  


Here's the situation.  


I have custody of my son and my fiancee' has custody of her son.  So I think that makes us a family of 4.  


Last tax year (2013) I lost my job (I coach college basketball) in august.  I was a coach at a small college and didn't make much anyway as a "part-time" employee (15K).  I had previously been at a bigger school making more back in 2012, 2011, etc so I had maybe 20K in my bank account and I didn't live lavishly.  I collected unemployment from August to Feb of 2014.  My 2013 tax return has an income of 19,567.  


After my unemployment benefits ran out in Feb of 2014, I made an additional $6,000 at 2 small part time jobs which I no longer do.  For the past few years I have also run some small basketball tournaments that made a little bit of cash but nothing really worth detailing.  Well this year since I had a lot of free time I really worked hard to make the tournaments a financial success.  The tournaments did well and in 5 days during the month of July I turned a profit of close to $50,000.  I am in the process of becoming an "official" business, but currently myself/my tournaments are NOT an official business.  That said I have close to $60,000 split between 2 bank accts....1 of which is paypal (altho not a large amount in there).  Other than my "asset", I own no house or nothing of serious value....just the liquid bank balance.  


My best friend is willing to also do an I-134 for me....he's willing to give me his bank balance (and statements worth about 40K), along with pay stubs (he's a teacher) and his last years taxes (He made about 50K).  


We have a interview at the Nairobi consulate on Sept 30th, 2014.  


My question I need my friend's I-134.  Without him....with no job and no real way to prove where I got this money, will my fiancee' and I be turned down???  If I use my friend's info....will that be enough info to get approved???  


Any thoughts, advice would probably help my nerves quite a bit.  For some reason it took our NOA2 almost 8 months when most people seemed to be getting approved in under 2 months.

arrowAOS interview too soon, we feel insufficient! HELP.

Hello VJ,


We recently received our notice to appear for the AOS interview in 2 weeks time. W e are adjusting from K1 and K2.

So we have been married for 4 months now. Our interview notice came just 2.5 months after the application, and i am grateful.

But looking at the requirements, we feel a little insufficient.


So we do not have the 'traditional' joint bank accounts, utility bills, car insurance etc under both names. I just received my EAD in the mail a few days ago and still looking for work. Husband has been taking care of all bills from his checking account, and i thank God for him. We were sort of waiting for when i can start working and then we can start sharing the bills. I have read here widely on the kind of questions asked at the interview and we feel that we have no problems with what we might be asked about our lives together. Its the 'other documents' that are giving us some gray areas.


This is a list of what we have, please review and advice on what we may do to certify the IO:


-Lease agreement (We added my name to this recently).

-Family medical cover (From his work)

-Family Y membership

-Pictures from everyday and trips we have taken together

-Mails from my daughters school (listing both of us as parents)

-Cards from each other on various occasions (and from family too)

-Future vacation trips booked and paid for the 3 of us. 



Thanks in advance for taking your time to read and give your invaluable advise!!
