Military record question

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

All, my fiance spent many years as a reservist in Canada. He needs military records for the interview, however if he asks for his whole file it would be hundreds of pages. What specific military information is required for the interview and K1 processing?

Thanks!

Try PMing the member Tater&#######, She also needed to send Canadian military documents I believe. She may know and be able to help with that.

I worked as a civilian with the CF, but I believe all you need is the enlistment records and discharge record....


See profile for our K-1 Visa/AOS story from 2010-2011Apparently we love USCIS/NVC so much we left and are doing it again! This time giving IR-1 a whirl. Rock on immigrators.

07/09/2014 sent in IR-1 packet to Chicago Lockbox

07/16/2014 NOA1

07/17/2014 check cashed by USCIS

10/01/2014 found out we are expecting baby #2 June 2015!

12/15/2014 NOA2

12/30/2014 Case received by NVC

03/23/2015 Received Case and Inv # from NVC after many calls and bogus excuses.

03/24/2015 AOS payment accepted by NVC

04/09/2015 IV payment finally accepted by NVC after the set the wrong fee and took weeks to correct it.

15 yrs of service here---I asked around for a document and everyone I asked was clueless! I just wrote up a letter, and then Ihad it signed by my commanding officer--was Air force, too easy to walk in ,lol. As well what i did was printed out my UER (unit employment record) and sent that in. Worked for me. BUT make sure you are discharged before the interview----I had no problem (my official release date wasn't till after the interview--but they didnt ask,lol) BUT 1 VJ member did have a problem--they would not issue him the visa until he was out!! So had to mail his passport back in! Just saying! I'm sure your UER would suffice.


Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1

Excellent information all. He had many years also and luckily has been out of the reserves several years, so discharge date is no issue. I really appreciate the quick responses by all.

Thank you!
