Submitted Blue slip documents today...

Hello all,

My fiancee submitted all the documents requested by the US Consulate today from our Blue slip last week. It was a stressful week, getting all documents together and having the responses reviewed by my attorney and her attorney at IOM in HCMC. I feel better now, and I hope I don't have to wait too long for a response. Did any of you other couples that had to supply additional documentation for a blue slip, what was the typical wait time for your responses?

Appreciate any comments...

This is what they asked for and what I sent:

They asked for proof of my former spouse current address. I was able to have my former spouse draft and sign a document that she lives in another home. She also notarized it.

They asked for general information about my ex_spouse which I had already provided them, when I originally sent all the paperwork to USCIS last year. I went ahead and gave them duplicate information. (If it helps my case, I won't complain)

I provided them with (2) sworn statements regarding how we first met and how we communicate, which I alluded to in my earlier postings last week.

I feel confident in what I submitted and our attorneys didn't have to modify or delete any sentences. I hope for success.

Good luck Guy. From what I have seen with other cases posted on here it appears that a month or so is the wait time. Thanks for posting about the I.O.M.. I didn't know about them. How have they assisted you so far and have they been helpful?

Hi WAITUSA,

Thanks for the reply, the average wait time seems to be about a month, I agree.

The IOM has been very helpful to my fiancee, I found them to be good for a "gut-check" or as a quick second opinion with all paperwork and advice. The female lawyer assisting my fiancee has been honest, helpful and nice.

My question is, whose goddamn business is it where your ex-wife lives? Why do they care? You've got a divorce, and that's that. Sorry, that hits a little close to home, as I still rent a room from my ex-wife (we get along much better now that we are not married). I am now furiously trying to find a suitable place to live now that our case is moving along finally. I sure hope that personal BS doesn't affect us. Good luck with your case.

Hi Melrose,

I agree with you 100%. That is supposed to be in the past. When I spoke with Marc Ellis on the phone, he said that being divorced and living with ex-spouse raises red-flags with them and they will definitely probe further and they will ask for further documentation. My case, my ex spouse and I continued to live together although in separate rooms for a few months after divorce because we had to sell our house. We were able to sell and I found my own place after that, but as you can see, the US consulate still wanted to make sure that my ex-spouse and me live separately.

Good luck to you also and I wish the best for you and yours.

Well, I should have paid more attention to this post from the beginning. This issue is coming back to bite me in the butt, it looks like. I too talked to Marc Ellis, and his exact words were, "Houston, we have a problem." 99% of the time, this living in the same house with the ex-wife business will result in automatic denial.

So now, I've got to find a new place yesterday, and get all my ####### changed sooner than possible. He's talking like year-long delays, although he says we will eventually win. But maybe we will get lucky, if I submit some evidence in advance, such as a letter from the ex-wife, checks proving I paid her rent, etc. Plus, my parents, my sister and her husband travelled to Vietnam with me at great trouble at expense to attend our engagement ceremony. She is 38 (about my age), and is fairly well-to-do for Vietnam. How could the CO even imagine it is a sham engagement? I just can't wrap my brain around that.

OK, I am confused.... how does the consulate know you live with your ex-spouse in the first place? Where is that information on any of the preliminary paperwork? Does it ask somewhere for a current address of your former spouse and what if you don't know?! I just don't understand how they can know something like that without being told.... can you enlighten me as to how they found this out or did you offer this info? Thanks so much!

Linda
