What are they looking for?

I have been looking though posts and graphs and polls on this website for about a month now since my fiance and I started this process in February and I would just like to say that it has been extremely helpful! I am curious as to what the officers are looking for at both the service center (in my case Vermont) and at the NVC? I thought at first they were just checking to see if we have a relationship but I have also been hearing about background checks and such. I am confident that these should come back clear but was wondering if anyone knew precisely what it is that they are doing over there while we are anxiously waiting! :no:

Thank you!

Background checks could be checking for criminal activity, terrorist activity, past USCIS applications, name checks, etc. Basically, just verifiying that your information on the application matches who you are.

I think at the service centers they look to see if you qualify for the visa: hence the free to marry documents, divorce decrees, etc, the proof of meeting within the last 2 years. They do a background check on the USC (IMBRA questions) and then they pass it on the NVC. At the service centers they also do some checks on the beneficiary.

At NVC what they basically do is they assign the embassy case number and then forward the approved petition to the consulate. There have also been some people who get stuck at NVC.

I think a majority of the time the petitions are at the service centers they are collecting dust...just my peronal feeling.
