Timeline

In JA until August 1st and I need to know the process of the NOA2. I applied for the CR-1 visa on April 15 and we have STILL heard Nothing. I need to know if there is anything that I can be doing while I am here to be ahead of the process of NOA2. I will not be able to see my hubby until 2 months after our baby is born(Due Date: Sept 27th) I was really hoping that during my next visit we would have an interview date. Hubby wants to get his police records now but is this is the best time? When do Jamaica Police records expire? Whatelse should I be doing?

Also trying to have mother in law come to visit me during the time the baby is born so that she can help out with the baby. Any suggestions as to the directions to with a visitor visa for her while hubby is waiting for interview date? Could her visit hender his interview process?

Well you case Type is typically processed quickly. Police reports from jamaican expires one year after the date it was issued. You can fill out any necessary paper work for the Afidavid of support - pretty much as long as it is dated in the current year or if you dont want to get em dated just fill em out and have em sit there and so all you'd have to so is just sign & date. Photos? Those can be done just about anytime, ensuring that passports are valid least six months from the date of the interview. There are things that can be done - while you wait.

Sorry for the double post - however didnt see that there was more than one inquiry. Her visit would not hinder him with the visa process including the interview. Have her appy for a US visa, now she has to show strong ties to her country of course. Things that are good that would give consideration will be .. A very good job, assests... house, financial information, very close family Mom/Dad/Spouse/Children. Also proof of INTENT TO return to Jamaica perhaps something like - A future upcomming wedding (if single), caring of a minor, sick person etc are just some examples. Know though - THAT it's supposed to go based on a fair process but it is upto the applicate to come with stong ties and be true during the entire process. I really hope all goes good and info was helpful.

Do not get the police report as of yet - In light of everything going on, I would get everything else together that you will need, and get the police report at the last possible second - With the recent investigation, people were required to get new police reports dated after June 14 - I would not put it past them to impose another change.

Congrats on the pregnancy girl! Must have been a good honeymoon, huh?

Thanks Sus,

I thought that we should wait to get the police report just trying to get everything out of the way. I am so ready to have this baby, JA is great but it is horrible while pregnant, the heat is a beast! :crying:

yeah good luck to ya .. also my parents havent not gootten an interview.. as yet .. but hey we started gettin the Police Report why wait..? WHY not opperate under the "CURRENT" guidelines - makes much sense to me. Now - should the VISA Requirements CHANGE to give a later date for Police Reports then one can update the f.i.l.e.s as necessary. I just paid the AOS fees for my parents.

Because if you DON'T have an interview date, and if the guidelines change AGAIN - you will incur the fee AGAIN - If you want to POSSIBLY pay for something TWICE, be my GUEST -

well yeah that's correct - The ONLY issue would be for those who have constraints to finances and really dont wanna pay twice. But only if you have enough funds they i say why not go for it. The fee rules/proposals, requirements for visas comes from the US Govt. once changes are made it is uslay set for a v long time. But keep me updated over the bext 1-2 years to see if there will be any changes.. UNLESSSSSSSSS there's again the faults of local law enforcement give incorrect police reports to those citizens who did acts of crimes and the Police Reportings are saying otherwise.... just becuase they (PO) want a few buckx. They started this mess i'm sure we all know this.

I just am very opposed to putting more money than I have to in someone's pockets - especially when it's their screwup! No arguments as to who started the mess, serious reform is needed -

I waited until the last minute to send my husband to get his police certificate a few weeks ago. The whole process took him an entire day (from 8 am until the late afternoon). Apparently since there are so many people needing new certificates since everything went on down there, it takes a full 14 days to have it expedited. I'd wait a little while...but not too long, as I ended up just sitting here waiting for him to send it to me!

P.S. Congrats on your pregnancy! The 27th of September is a GREAT day to be born on (it's my b-day)! ;)
