Hey all. Best wishes to you and your processing. I am a new poster to this website but I always find it quite helpful. A little about us: My name is Tara and my Husband's name is Zaheer, but we call him Ali. We have been married since January 25, 2009. But, we have been together since August 2008. I travelled here to Pakistan, where I currently am writing to you all from. We applied for his I-130 on March 17 but since it needed to be sent via USPS, we mailed it to my father in USA first to send from home. It arrived at USCIS on the 25th of March. They sent us the NOA1 on the 31st of March. Once we received it, we sent his K3 application. They received it on April 27th I believe. We now have the NOA1 from both the K3 and I-130. Still awaiting the NOA2 from both, but their website www.uscis.gov shows that they are working on both cases as of May 7th for the K3 and May 13th for the I-130. So, just hoping everything works out. Please pray for us. We are worried about the current situation here in Pakistan. We called the USCIS to expedite the visa due to recent bombings and Taliban activity nearby, but even with the direct threats to our family, they said it was not an extreme emergent situation and not valid for expediting. Our family has been directly targeted. In Pakistan, everywhere here we see handwritten signs saying "Any friend to America is an Enemy to Pakistan" and "Death to America". My husband even saw a sign over a public toilet saying "Whitehouse, America" with an arrow indicating. The Taliban knows where we live and there are Al Qaeda members living in our neighborhood. When we got married, there were articles in the paper. So, they all know where we are and my husband works for the government... so he is always a target. Keep us in your prayers and thanks for reading. I pray for you all and best of luck on your petitions. May Allah Bless you and give you swift Response.

Hey Donna. Nice to meet you. I am glad you are waiting in a safe country. We live in a fairly wealthy part of Pakistan, but we are only 23 km from the Indian border, so, it makes it a little unsteady. We can see the mountains of Kasmir from our roof. It has been quite an adjustment for me, the food, the culture, whatnot, but, I am enjoying time with my husband. My 2.5 yr old daughter is back in USA with my parents and her father. I cant wait to get back and see her and also to start our new life. Insha'Allah (God-Willing), it will be over soon. It is nice to meet someone going through the same kind of wait. I wish you all the best and hope you and your hubby get to spend your lives together in USA very soon. Perhaps we'll cross paths in the States one day. Take care and I will pray for you.

This is so sad. Every time I hear on news about Pakistan, and I'm thinking: OK, we live in 21st century. Is it possible ppl to be so blind and get stupid because of the religion? I can only pray you'll leave soon this country and your family will live a normal life in a civilized world (F)
