  • Our Story
    We started this whole process in 2016 which was 2-3 months after we got married. February 2016 we send in the first application. Ehen november came around we send in a waiver and waited to get approved by NVC. The visa was approved by NVC first by summer 2017. Then NVC send us the approval for the waiver around January 2018. This is what took the longest time for us. On march we received a notice that it was approved and to wait for an appt date for the consulate of juarez mexico. We received a notice with the date a month later for june 13. We went to Juarez my husband did medical exam first then he did fingerprints the next day. The following day we had the interview and i waited for him outside for about 2hours and he came out with a blue sheet saying it was incomplete. He was asked if he had recent taxes and we didnt bring them so our cade was left on Administration processing, the blue sheet he received had instruction but when our lawyer and my sister were in the middle of getting forms and documents ready we received an email changing the instruction around 6pm that same day. Our lawyer did our paperwork my sister got the needed documents. Friday of that week June 15 all documents were sent to us from California and didnt received them til tuesdsy of the following week. Let me tell you the worst part of all of this is waiting and cant do anything. On tuesday was received at a local DHL just to be send out at the DHL location next to the juarez consulate. After 4-5 days after everything was send in my husband case status change from Administration processing to ISSUED!! After it was issued we still had to wait another couple of days to receive confirmation of the package delivered to DHL for pick up that was thursday morning june 28th. That same morning we packed our stuff head out towards el paso to the bridge to head out to give the packet to immigration and he got his mexican passport stamped and we left mexico amd took a bus from el paso to los angeles california. We have been back home for almost to weeks and yesterday july 10 he received his social security card and now he is waiting for his green card to get here. We still dont have a tracking number for the green card but i keep checking the case status with a receipt number given when i paid the fee for the greencard the day we left. If anyone had questions let me know. I knoe this wasnt soo detailed lol

Immigration Timeline & Photos

  1. Look i had to prove that hardship stuff for my husband. Lawyer send me to counseling they said if he were to leave country i would go all depressed n all that. Then we got his fam in mexico to send pics of how n where he would live there amd that i wouldnt go because theres no job n life there with narcos is bad.but they pretty much used the report from the phycologist plus pics and info on how life was and the struggle it is. That was our hardship plus my uncle got kidnapped like 4 years ago n thT helped
  2. i honestly dont know how processing time was before but we started march 2016 and every time we filed for something we got response between 3-5 months. Until we had to send out packet with forms and prove that we are married and am born here and sponsors tax forms and include a waiver n all that good stuff. Was from november 2016 and received a replie in summer of 2017 that visa was approved and waiver was approved january 2018 and then after that it was pretty quick. We got a letter march to wait to receive appointment. In april we receive letter for interview appt for june 13. Yes i did go to juarez with him and alot of people do take their families and its not that bad just hot lol i was there for 3 weeks in a hotel accross the consulate
  3. We send in the visa application with a waiver and they replied and approved the visa first then took couple more months to approve the waiver. Once we got waiver approved we applied to get the interview date in juarez. Our lawyer send in the waiver with the rest of the packet for NVC to get approve because if he left to juarez they can make him stay there. I have a friend that applied for visa got approved then filed to get the appointment and the day his wife went they approved her but she had to stay in mexico for about a year Before she received her visa.
  4. The lady that interview him said everything was in order but she wanted the recent taxes filed for 2017. So take the tax copies of ur sponsors n yours with the recent ones just in case
  5. Well my husband had the interview he didnt get approved until we submitted the papers he was asked for.case was in administrative process for over a week before we actually got approved.

  9. Thanks but we got good news this morning and we need to wait for DHL to get the visa to go home.
  10. tired

    We waiting for over a year
  11. We got here to Juarez June 10, 2018. My husband had his medical appt the following day; monday. On tuesday 6-12-18 he had his appt for fingerprints. Wednesday 6-13-18 he had his appt 9:15 at the consular i waited outside for about 2 hrs and he walked out with a blue sheet. He said the officer told him she wanted to see recent taxes for 2017 from petitioners and he didnt have them. So the officer told him he wasnt denied because he had been approved for a waiver already but she wanted to see those taxes before she made a decision. So case turned into ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESSING. So that same day we called back home got lawyer to do the form they asked for with the taxes (w2s). They send the packet friday morning(taxes) from california. Since weekend got in the way we didnt receive it in juarez til yesterday 6-19-18.today is the 20th and dhl said it was delivered at the consular and now its just waiting and checking to see if the status changes on the visa. I was just wondering if anyone had something similar to this. I almost have two weeks here in juarez with my husband and feels like an eternity with just waiting and waiting.
