We had our interview on April 7 scheduled at 6:00AM. We arrived at the embassy 4:30AM and the line was already huge!! After about 45 minutes, some embassy workers in yellow shirts came out and started breaking up the line into four lines according to types of visa interviews. It was complete confusion and the first worker told us to get in the wrong line!! After we figured things out and got in the correct line, we finally entered the embassy around 8:30. After about 15 minutes inside, we were called to window 25 to submit our forms and supporting documents. We received a numbered ticket. Another half hour later, we were called to window 13 to get her fingerprints taken. After that, we waited until around 2:45 for the actual interview. We were called to window 21, were the consul agent swore us in in Spanish. He spent several minutes looking over the documents. He read several of our emails. Then he asked me the following questions in English:

CO: How did you meet your fiancee?

Me: Thru an international dating site.

CO: Were you married before?

Me: Yes.

CO: When did you first visit her?

Me: August.

CO: 2007?

Me: That's right.

CO: (Looking at my passport) You went to Brazil?

Me: Yes.

CO: Did you take her with you?

Me: No, that was before we met.

CO: Who do you work for?

Me: Comcast.

CO: (Looking over telephone records) What is her telephone number?

Me: 829-***-****

CO: How many times have you been to the Dominican Republic?

Me: For her specifically; four times.

CO: You visited before?

Me: Yes, once in 2006.

CO: What was the purpose?

Me: Vacation.

And that was it! He didn't ask her anything. After a few more minutes of looking over the documents, he turned to her and said in Spanish, "I'm going to approve the visa. You will receive it within a week to ten days." We thanked him and went to Domex to pay the courier fee.

The visas for her and her daughter arrived 10 days later, and she arrived in the US last night! It still seems unreal. She will go back to get her daughter in August.

Kudos to this website for the invaluable advise and information. Now we are just looking at the adjustment process. At least now we are together.
