Well. First time I am posting

I am a USA citizen, my fiaince is from Peru

started gathering the info needed. I should recieve from my love (DHL) by next week then I will send off.

Brief History:

I met Marilu in October 2004. I was traveling to Peru for business about 4 or 5 times a year.\

We started a realtionship.

I fell in love with her very quickly.... but.... I was married. SHe got to know me, and knew I was not happily married and was there for my children.

I came to realize that it was better for my children if I am happy so.....

I separated from my wife in March of 2006

Finally in December of 2007 my wife signed the divorce and in January of 2008 it was final.

Me and my sweet Marilu shoud have our papers in by the next month.

I know the length or time till we get approved is unpredictable, I am guessing 6 to 7 months.

My first question

1. what have others experienced for time from Peru

2. I am confused about the interview. Will I need to go to Peru for the final interview or am I interviewed in the states.

3. What if I owe some back taxes... worried about what I will show on 2008 and may not be able to cover the tax due.

Thanks for your help

Lloyd

Welcome to VJ and the journey.......

1. You hit the nail on the head...... around 6 to 8 months is about the average time if no bumps in the road

2. You do not have to attend the interview in Peru. But it is highly suggested that you attend the interview.

3. They are not interested in if you can pay your taxes. They are interested if you can afford to support your fiance once she is here.

Best of luck

Lloyd,

The responses above are good ones. There is additional info under the guides tab on this site as well as the link titled Embassy info. You can select Peru and get helpful info. Also the link titled Reviews will give you some idea of other's experiences at the embassy in Peru.

As for me and my love, we are still awaiting NOA2 but we can keep in touch throughout the process if you want, some of the very best info I have received has been from others here on VJ...

Hey Lloyd, in the same boat here..these peruvian women are something else... :thumbs: .....anyways, my wife and I decided to go with a lawyer, although with all the info here you really dont need one. My wife and I actually got married last year in May. At the moment we are getting the necessary signatures from my wife and then well send the first packet sent by the NVC back to the NVC. All together it'll be about a year for us when this gets all done. Many finish in 9 or sooner, I guess depending on turn around time and individual case. I personnaly will go with my wife to the interview as she is expecting our little one at the moment :) good luck to you..you definitely came across the right place to seek advice.....

You've posted in a thread that's nearly 4 years old. The OP hasn't been on VJ for 13 months.

You'd do best to read the Embassy Info and "Reviews: Embassy" for Lima (see atop any VJ page), then read the various threads from other Peru filers, and only then ask your unanswered questions, si man.


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).
