arrowK-1 adjudication process question
August 24, 2016, 8:25 pm Last comment by RobertM54

This is a Q&A with a former adjudicator  (HUSKERKIEV  ). 2007 time frame so it is a bit dated. 



There is a very good background post here:


This explains what a "touch" is



It may be that the answers to these questions are not knowable.


From the first thread I inferred the process at the time was:

File arrives at the center and is scanned in. That is the touch that is after the NOA1 date (for me NOA1 was 6/20 and the last update was 6/23).

It is boxed up with about 50 other files and put on a shelf. --> This process may be very dated. It is possible that the cases are allocated by some electronic scheme now. Can anyone confirm what happens now?

Adjudicators pull boxes to work. The goal is to pull boxes in roughly the order in which they arrived.

Once they have a box the adjudicator scans all of the files into his queue. This should result in a touch. Can anybody confirm this? What I am looking for is: does a touch still happen when a case enters an adjudicator's queue-however that happens now?


It may be that cases are now allocated via a computer selection algorithm one at a time when an adjudicator is ready to work a new case. If true, that begs the question why there is such a broad range of dates between cases that have been approved and those that are still sitting on the shelf without a touch.


However cases are allocate these days, the routine cases are then worked fairly quickly: in as little as 15 minutes. Read the thread for all the things that happen.


So it looks like at any given time and for whatever reasons, adjudicators are pulling boxes (or otherwise getting cases allocated to them) with cases spread over a 2-3 week moving window, Since my case has not been touched since it arrived at CSC, my guess is it is still sitting  in a box (or the electronic equivalent) with the rest of the cases from my week that have not yet been pulled by an adjudicator. 


So I look several times a day for a touch that indicates my case has now been given to an adjudicator. 


I would love to see any additional insight this group has into the processes at CSC.

arrowK1 Visa Reissuance & Overstay

Hi all,


It's been a very long time since I've posted on this forum. I'll try to make a long story short because this has been a very long and very emotionally draining. I started K1 Visa Process in October 2014. It was completed with Visa in Hand around May 2015. 


In July/August 2015, a lot of bad things happened and the relationship between my fiance and I was severely damaged. Needless to say it's been very devastating for me emotionally and even though a year has gone by I still haven't been able to move on. Apparently, she hasn't either. We were looking to do a visa re-issuance. The Consulate in Ukraine instructed me that basically the fiance needs to re do the interview, get police papers, medical exam and all that stuff. I need to provide a letter with intent to marry. 


My question is what are the odds of the visa getting reissued? Should she be honest in the interview and explain that between finishing her masters degree in Ukraine and other factors, we had second thoughts about her coming to US but after some time realized that we still love each other through all of it and still want to be with each other?


Also, regarding the 3 month window which requires you to marry, what happens if you decide to get married later than that? What if you waited 5 or 6 months, can you get into a lot of trouble?

There are so many rumors of war starting up in Ukraine again and I'm getting worried. Does anyone know if war in beneficiary's country affects visa process? I know in adoption cases it speeds up USCIS end of things. Wondering if they'd rush I-129 approval or not. Or maybe it would slow things down at embassy?

i got my NOA1 by text on August 4. Today I checked my case status in it said::

"My document was sent back to USCIS.
On August 15 ,2016, the post office returned your document to us. we will hold your document for 180 days or until February 11, 2017. Please go to www.uscis.gov/e-request to request that we resend the document to you. If you do not submit a request by February 11,2017 we will destroy your document and you will need to file a new form I-129F with fee. "
First of all, any ideas on what document they could've been sending? Would it be my written NOA1?
Second of all, I tried going to the link but I'm supposed to know which document they need to resend me and I don't :/ is there a number I can call?
I'm thinking this is because my last name changed a month or two ago and I forgot to notify my post office :/

Anyone here been approved for a K-1 visa in Kiev when they were only a little above 100% poverty level? I know technically 100% is all that's required but I've also read some COs want you at the 125% level. im trying to get a feel for how it works in Kiev. (I already have a co sponsor for when we do the I-864 so only worried about visa interview)
