My wife who just became a Naturalized Citizen would like to petition her Mother who lives in the Philippines, about how long is the I-130 process taking now? What are the total fees including petition filing, medical exam, visa and any other applicable fees? Thanks to all who can help!!!


K1 Process

6-28-2004 Submitted I-129F Petition for Alien Fiancee

7-28-2004 Received NOA2 (approval notice)

8-2-2004 Received NVC notice saying my petition was being processed and would be delivered to the US Embassy in Manila within a week.

8-16-2004 Called US Embassy in Manila to verify they had received my petition for my fiancee and inquire as to approx how long before she receives her K1 packet. Nice lady informed me they received my petition on July 30th and that my fiancee would be receiving her packet in about 1 week and that her K1 interview date at the embassy was October 22nd.

8-27-2004 My fiancee Ann received her K1 packet

9-16-2004 Sent my I-134 Affadavit of Support (and supporting documents/evidence) via FedEx to my fiancee. Was delayed 1 day because Mail Boxes Etc. didn't tell me I needed to declare a value for the photos I was sending as additional evidence.

9-28-2004 Ann's medical exam at St. Luke's (Day 1)

AOS and EAD process
