Hi all,

First, thank you to everyone that provides insight and great information through this website - it is indeed invaluable. I have read and gotten advice from various folks on here - so thank you. Second, my prayers for everyone to be with their loved ones very soon.

A bit about our situation and question:

Husband is an Indian Citizen. I am a US Citizen by birth right. We were married about 1 year ago in November. As all we have had ot file the I-130 and I-129F petitions...

1) Gained approved I-129F petition and interview date set for 8/10/09 in Chennai, India

2) Interview completed by husband on 8/10/09 and he was given a blue slip but the lady took his passport initially and said 4-5 days

3) The Consulate gave his passport back a bit later stating that it may take 10-30 days

4) Blue slip does not indicate any need for "additional information" just states "administrative processing" (I understand that this can take an unspecified time limit)

Most folks have recommended to continue just checking back with the consulate and ensure movement on the case.

Question 1: Any ideas why we would have been given the blue slip and/or ideas of length of time if it is a security background check/other reasons??

Also, we have in our hand an approved I-130 petition and we chose initially to hold off a few days to file the next steps in getting the I-130 on its way to becoming a CR1 interview in Chennai. Realize there are distinct benefits to the I-130/CR1 visa v. the K-3.

Question 2: Is there any harm in processing our I-130 petition while the K-3 is going through the "admnistrative process" with unknown reasons why they have put our K-3 Visa request through...I understand if the I-130 comes through - my husband may need to go through a CR1 interview but is there any harm to the K-3 or am I correct in assuming that the CR1 interview and process will cancel out the K-3?

Thank you and continued good luck to all,
