My interview appointment is 7:00. Got there at the USEM at 5:45 am, there were already many people waiting outside. Guard checked my appointment letter and ID. After almost 15 minutes of waiting outside, the applicants were allowed to go inside. Had our bags scanned and then I and the girl I met there followed the blue arrows. Once inside, another guard directed us to a line near the door. There were two windows there, that's where they checked the DS forms. After checking, they gave me a number and asked me to sit in one of the blue chairs and wait for my number. The numbers were flashed randomly, so most of the time, I had my eyes glued on the screen. During this time, I've been so nervous because I don't have my fiance's pay stubs (he's been temporarily laid off for 4 months and we're still waiting for his company to call him) and his letter of employment doesn't have any signature of his supervisor. :unsure:

After almost 30 minutes of waiting, my number flashed in the screen, I then went to window 20. He's a nice guy. He asked why it's only now that I'm having my interview. I told him the police clearance from Israel took a long time. He had more questions about my job in Israel than about our relationship. He asked for my fiance's affidavit of support, I gave him the form, he then asked for the income tax return, I just gave him the W2 (my fiance told me confidently that his W2 would be enough :bonk: After giving the other documents, he told me to go to the waiting area again and wait for my number to flash in the screen. I was relieved when I went back to my sit. Waited for like 10 mins, then I heard my number called for finger scanning in window 33. A black guy asked for my name and birthday, then a girl assisted me for the finger scanning. Went back to the waiting area and I was getting nervous again as I was waiting for my number to flash for the final interview.

I went to window 32 for my final interview. It was an old man,a little chubby. He asked for my name, my petitioner's name. Where did we meet? What did I do in Israel? How long did I stay there? What's my fiance's job? He asked for my fiance's income tax return, but i didn't have it :( While we were talking he was typing and reading something on his computer. After checking everything, he told me that everything's ok with my papers, however, he needs to see my fiance's tax return for the year 2009. He asked me to go to the waiting area, wait for my number to be flashed then go to window 38 for more information. The woman there gave me a paper. Asked me to submit the lacking document. She said that a scanned copy is fine.

We are happy even though I didn't get the pink slip. At least, they didn't ask for his pay stubs (it's what were so worried about).

After I submit the document, how long will I have to wait for my visa? Thanks.

Congratz! :star:

We were in your shoes. My wife had to submit one final document after her K-1 interview. She submitted the document on a Thursday. She had the visa in her hand the following Thursday.

Hope yours is as speedy as ours was!

"Our Wedding Prayer"

Lord,help us to remember when we first met,and the strong love that grew between us.

To work the love into practical things so nothing can divide us

Grant us a Love that grows stronger with each passing year.

We ask for words both kind and loving

and for hearts always ready to ask forgiveness as well as to forgive.

Guide us to overcome every challenge

and keep our dreams pure to each other always.

Dear Lord,we put our marriage into Your hands.Amen

If your heart acquires strength, you will be able to remove blemishes from others without thinking evil of them.

Glad your interview went better than my wife's. She was hounded in the fact that she was denied the last inteview. They are trying to use that against her again. But according to my information and from uscis, they can not longer use it, because it was already used and considered and our petition was reaffirmed. The must use new evidence, not the old evidence. "If, based on the evidence received, the USCIS officer determines that the approval should not be revoked,

the petitioner will receive a notice advising of the decision to reaffirm the petition. The petition will be

returned to DOS’s National Visa Center (NVC) for shipment to the appropriate consulate with the USCIS

letter of reaffirmation, a copy of the letter of intent to revoke and the petitioner’s response. The NVC will

then forward the petition to the consular office. The consular officer may accept the petition as valid and

adjudicate the visa application to completion, or present to USCIS new evidence that was not previously

considered. In the latter case, USCIS will determine whether such evidence supports revocation of the

petition." (USCIS, 2009).

My wife did not get the pink, but they kept her passport and will return on thursday to submit certified copies of the birth certificates for the kids. I am not sure what will happen at this point. But I am very positive they cannot deny her for the same thing as before because it was overruled by my documents I submitted with the notice of intent to deny that the USCIS sent in sept 2009. I have sent the embassy an email, reminding them in fact that they must either validate our visa or find new evidence to deny and not use previously considered evidence as per USCIS policies and procedures for returned cases after a visa denial.

I recieved the following email response:

Date: April 12, 2010

This is in reply to your inquiry of April 9, 2010, regarding the visa case of the referenced individual.

The applicant was interviewed today, April 12, 2010, in connection with her IR1 visa application.

Following a careful review of the information and documents available to us, the adjudicating consular officer had to undertake further administrative processing on the case. As soon as the review is completed, we will contact the applicant to resume processing the visa application.

We have included a copy of your communication in the applicant’s case file.

If the applicant would like to inquire further about the status of the visa case, she may contact the Embassy's Visa Call Center at telephone 1-909-101-7878. This number is for subscribers of PLDT and Smart telephone touchtone landlines with national and international distance dialing features (NDD or IDD access). Callers in the USA can contact the Call Center at 1-888-877-9888. The Call Center is open Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (Manila time). There is a fee assessed to callers by the Call Center for its services.

Future fiancé(e) and immigrant written visa inquiries should be directed to this web link: http://manila.usembassy.gov/wwwh3230.html.

We hope this information will be helpful to you.
