arrowH1b, London Embassy, How long does it take?

I'm a UK citizen. Last year I was on a J1 visa. My employer applied for a change of status to H1-b, and it's been granted. On Monday (the 22nd) I'll be going to the Embassy in London for my interview. I want to know how long it's likely to take to get the stamp. I already have a flight booked on the 31st.

The embassy says that typically it takes 3-5 days for the stamp to be given. Since Christmas day and boxing day are not working days, the 5 working days after the 22nd are:

- the 23rd
- the 24th
- the 29th
- the 30th
- the 31st

Should I change my flight now, or should I wait?

(To change my flight costs $300 + the difference in price between my old flight (about $600) and the new flight.)

The safe option is to change my flight now. It'll cost about $700.

If I wait, I might get my visa in time for the 31st, in which case I won't have to change my flight at all - hooray! On the other hand, if I wait I might not get my visa in time, in which case I'll have to book a flight to the US at very short notice, which is likely to cost a small fortune.

My first day back at work in the US is the 5th of January.

In case it's relevant:

 - I live in the SF Bay Area

 - I recently married an American

 - My employer is a large US university.

arrowK1 form filling help?

So I'm busy completing all the forms and evidence needed for the petiton and then I'll be sending it to my fiance in the U.S and he'll send them on from there but I have a few questions I hope someone could just help me with;


1. If a question is none or n/a should I leave it blank or fill it with none or n/a? The instruction sheet on the USCIS website says the leave the space blank but I've read people have had forms returned because they wanted none or n/a filled in?

2. The question asking if you've been to the U.S before, I have but I'm not currently there. Should I still fill in the information for my passport? for the last time I visited. It was earlier this year,

3. Since I'm completing the forms and signing my parts here in the U.K then sending them for my fiance to sign and finish in the U.S should I put the date in advance for the same day he will sign or date mine for the day I sign then his will be a few days later when he signs?


Any help is appreciated! :)

arrowCan I be a self co-sponsor in this situation?

Yet another question from me...


Can I be my own co-sponsor by demonstrating that I have had and will continue to have income from my online job (if I emphasise that this will be paused whilst I await my EAD) or can you only self co-sponsor with bank savings/by owning a house?


For example, poverty guidelines is currently around $19,660, if he makes $16,000 and I make roughly £500 a month from my online job, can we combine this? 


I fear that this may be wishful thinking... All advice appreciated.

arrowI-129f - Child question HELP?

So my fiance and I are busy completing all the forms needed to file the petition. I'm in the UK and he's in the US. We've recently had a son together, he's 3 months old and he has both US and UK citizenship, we've already got his CRBA and US passport sorted alongside his British one. My question is, do I need to include his details on the I-129f where it asks about the fiance's children. He's our son but he doesn't need a visa as he is already recognised as an American citizen. So I just want to be sure of everything really and hopefully you guys can help.


Any input is appreciated!

Hi All,


Has anyone here had a recent experience of how long it takes to get a British Passport renewed, if mailed in from the USA? Mine has time before it expires, but i travel often for work, and I have a little time before my next international trip - so i thought i might get it renewed!


Any assistance would be appreciated!
