How long do we wait now?

Hi all... So for some reason (I'm guessing its because its Valentine's Day) I had this urge to call the NVC to check on the status of our case. Imagine my unbelievable surprise to hear that lovely lady (I like her today LOL) tell me that both my husband's case and my stepson's case have been completed.

Am I correct in assuming that their files are now on the way to the embassy? If yes can anyone who has been through this in London help me with some timelines? I do realize they will be "guestimates" based on your own experiences....

1. How long from the time NVC completes their case until the Embassy in London receives it?

2. How long until my husband receives a letter from the Embassy with further instructions?

3. Does that letter include interview and medical appointment dates?

Basically, as I am sure you all know, I just want to know exactly where we stand right now? I would love to have a better idea of how much longer until my family is finally whole again.

Happy Valentine's Day to all.. with much much love going out to all of you who, like us, are separated from our loved ones on this day. May next year find us in the arms of the ones we love!!

This what I was told the embassy will not recieve your case until a interview date is set. Ive been told its about a month before the interview date that they recieve information from the embassy with further instructions. The letter does not include an appointment already made for you. But does tell you where you can try and go and then you can make your own appointment. I had my local represenatives call the NVC and they got alot more out of them then I could! It helped alot you know more where your standing at. And the NVC operators lie!! I was told they are infact not done with scheduling interviews until almost the end of next week.

crashandcari,

The NVC sets the interviews for the CR-1 not the embassy as with the other visas. It then depends obviously on the embassy scheduling as to when an interview is available. London is not too bad but I really dont know timeframes regarding that embassy. Have a look at the link below. It will give you at least an idea.

Now I'm confused.. during one of my calls to the NVC I asked about who schedules the interviews because I had seen somewhere in this forum that yes, the NVC did that. But the two people I spoke to (I called twice about different questions) both said the the Embassy in London does the scheduling after they receive the file. Should I be calling the NVC again to find out?

And thanks for the link Aussie.. I have seen those before but to be honest they don't help me much because they only talk about timeframes between NOA(s) to the interview and not, say, payment of IV bill, returning of Affidavit of Support, things like that.

I do appreciate all the help though and think you are so on top of everything Aussie... have you become Queen of this forum? :)

Oh shute.......did I give you a bum steer :unsure: Im curious to confirm that now too about the NVC scheduling CR-1's or whether it depends on embassy. To my knowledge so far those that have been forthcoming with that info have all said NVC. Believe me I was taken back with it too as I had been mosying along quite happily and came across that a few weeks back and thought whoa back. Hopefully someone can confirm.

As for the timelines.....yeah I agree. Ewok mentioned in a thread about the timelines couple of days ago that he is looking at including NVC stage as it is lacking. Partly why I started the Waiting on NVC and Interview thread so as to give members some indication but that is early days and not enough on the list to guage yet.

Thanks Amanda and Aussie... I just discovered the forum here discussing the Embassy and posted my question over as well. They seem to have a lot of answers more specifically geared to each Embassy's workings...
