Hello All,

My petition was approved and sent to the US embassy in the Philippines and they are waiting for my fiancee's physical and appointment for an interview. But because she has a "slight" problem with her cenomar, like she is married (I have a post from a earlier topic about this and got my answers) so we can't move forward until we can fix her problem(like get an annulment), my question is this: Who and where do I ask for an extension on my petition? I still have until April 20 before it expires but this annulment process will take many months but I hope before a year is up. Thank you for any help.

You have 1 year to schedule your appointment. Trust me on this, I waited 5 months to schedule my interview.

But I am not sure how the annulment thing will factor because you should have both been single and free to marry when you applied, so they might look at the dates (time of filing vs. date of annulment papers) and this might not work in your favor. I hope it works out though, goodluck..


My Journey:

We met through a study-abroad program in Shanghai, China in August of 2009

We got engaged March of 2010

I received my K1 VISA in 6 months (June-December 2010)

We were married 04/02/2011
I received my conditional 2-year greencard (AOS) in 2.5 months with no interview (April-June 2011)

Our son was born 02/03/2013

I received my masters degree in Speech-Language Pathology 04/17/2013

I received my 10-year greencard (ROC) in 3 months with no interview (March-June 2013)

My husband returned from deployment 06/20/2013

My naturalization journey took 4 months (April-August 2014)

I became a US citizen on 08/01/2014

Received passport in 3 weeks (regular processing)

Thank you, VJ! smile.png

Hello Kriseve_prot,

I still dunno. We are still working on her cenomar so I will soon call the US embassy. I will let you know if they will grant us one year. But from what I have heard from other posts, one year sounds right.
