fiance ?

not filed any petition yet, right ?

IMO -

can file the I-129F immediately, then bust his @ss during the next 8 months to either:

--make a bunch of money or

--secure a joint-sponser/co-sponser

His finances are not evaluated until actual INTERVEW DAY at Guangzhou IV, with a 'look-see' at the I-134.

Some ppl may think this is a gamble, others not.

Tell Him to Get Busy, regardless !!

If in fact, it IS a CR-1 - then his financials are reviewed at NVC, figure 6 to 7 months after initial I-130 submittal (sometimes 4 to 5 months, so be warned)

Which is it? CR-1 or K-1 ? I-130 or I-129F ? Pick one or the other - one has a spouse, the other a fiance.

Do you know if this is true for all embassies in all countries? We're doing a CR-1 and from reading forums I'm now confused as to at which stage (NVC or embassy) the I-864 is really delved into. Is it both?

I-864 is NOT I-134, sorry.

I-864 used for CR-1, I-134 used for K-1 and K-3 visas.

I-864 examined twice, once at NVC for 'completeness' and 'make the cut' -

then again at the Embassy, deeply...

The OP used 'fiance' in a sentence, but CR-1 as part of the topic, so I'm a bit confused as to what is being filed for -

but I wrote about both I-864 and I-134, just in case.

NVC just arranges your papers and makes sure everything is in order, nothing is missing, etc.

It is evaluated on interview day by the CO who takes into account the 'totality of the circumstances' -- he/she has the final say.

Ohhhhhhhhhhh... light bulb is now going off over the top of my head. I don't know how I've spent this many hours reading VJ forums and government websites on immigration and am just now only learning this.

Thank you!

But wait... if the visa is denied at the interview based solely on the lack of proper AOS, what happens then? Do you get a chance to mail them a new set of forms and have it reevaluated then, or do you have to get back in line for a whole new interview?

(feeling dumb)

--Always a good feeling. :)

--Usually it is not 'denied' for the AOS, maybe only temporarily. You're given a chance to rectify it and you will be asked to submit a new set of I-864 or I-864A, or supporting documentation. Usually, you can mail it or fax it in.
