Hello!

My fiance and I need some advice.. we received our NOA2 on June 17, 2010. He then came here for 3 weeks and we figured by the time he got back to the UK he would have received packet 3 or a notice that the Embassy got the packet. But, he returned home yesterday and there wasn't anything. Today I called NVC (after hearing busy signals all day finally got through..) The woman said that our package was sent to the Embassy on June 23. We are not sure what to do next. I just read that they may have given it a new case number? Do I call back and ask for this.. or do I just have my fiance call the embassy to see what is going on? Or is there something else we should be doing? You all are always incredible at answering questions.. so I thank you in advance!!

THANKS!!

You'll need the new LND case number. Call the DOS for an update. 202-663-1225 (Press 1 for Main Menu, then 0 for Operator).

They can give you the LND case number if you give them your USCIS receipt number.

Don't fret, it can take a while. I remember when i was in that stage i called and called and called!! Its painful waiting but trust me, you will receive it soon enough. You can actually find what 'Packet 3' is on here somewhere so you could start preparing everything. Do not send in your docs until you receive packet 3. I say do not send it back before you get packet 3 because i spoke to a really nice guy at the London Embassy and he assured me that people who send their packet 3's in before they receive their packet 3 from the embassy do not speed up their process. But it will mean you can send yours in the day after you receive packet 3. Hope that makes sense!!

Hi

So, has your partner sent off for their police checks, have they set up their medical, have you gathered all of the info you need as supporting evidence for your 1-134 Affidavit of Support?

When your partner receives 'packet 3' it is only a letter with a link on it. I cannot remember what the link is but i am sure you can find it on here. I know you need to complete the following:

Complete and send back the following forms to the IVU at the address shown below:

* Form DS-230-I (Part I only) for each person applying for a visa, regardless of age

* Unsigned forms DS-156 (see article on Form DS-156 for information regarding the electronic completion of this form)

* Unsigned form DS-156K

* Form DS-157 (if applicable)

* Form IV-15 (if required documents are already assembled)

You only send back the IV-15 when you have all of the police certificates etc as this will then schedule your interview. I know they changed it end of last year that you had to of had your medical before your interview and the Embassy had to have received the results before the interview.

If you are wanting to know if London have received your case then you can call the expensive phone number 09042 450 100 (£1.20/min). I would suggest calling in the middle of the day as i always seemed to get through a lot quicker than after work (probably when everyone is calling). They will then be able to tell you if they have received your case, it can also put your mind at rest. I know when my fiance and i were going through the K1 process it was so stressful and i worried about every little thing! I have had a few months of non stress and now we are starting our AOS so more stress!!

Hope all this info helps, good luck :-)

You call the DOS at 202-663-1225 (Press 1 for Main Menu, then 0 for Operator).

Ask them for a status update. They can tell you whether the case was logged in at the London Embassy, and whether Packet 3 has been sent out or not. Our case was logged this morning, but Packet 3 hasn't been sent yet. (It's a bit early to have expected that, but maybe by the end of the week...) B-)

The DOS can keep you updated at this point, or you can also call the London Embassy sirectly at +44-2074-999-000 (a little expensive). They have email, but you have to call in and get the email code to put in your subject line or they'll delete your email without reading it, thinking it's spam.

Good luck!
