Do past visas speed up process?

My fiancee and I just started the process for the K1 visa. Everything I have read makes it sound like six months is pretty standard. She is coming from Brazil, and has been in the US in the past with a H2B visa working various jobs to learn English. She has also been up here with a B1 for work while she was employed as an engineer. And she has been here with a B2 visa when she visited me last summer. My question is does anybody know if having past visas speeds up the K1 process.

Also, it is very very early, I just Fedex'd the package last friday, but the check was cashed already on Wednesday. Is that a good sign or is that pretty standard.

Thanks,

Scott

Cashing the check already is a very good sign. At least they seem to be caught up with opening the mail. Otherwise the previous visas wouldn't impact the petition approval process. They may signal an easy interview though.

I don't think past visa will speed things up much..

Seems the CS take their time to do things.

I never received an NOA1 after about 6 months I just received the RFE.

Just wait and good luck to you.

They won't speed it up, but as pushbrk said, it might help at interview time!

Good luck!
