Hello everyone,

Thought it would be nice to introduce myself/ourselves.

We are Ingmar & Liz, Ingmar being from The Netherlands and Liz being from Califnoria, USA and we too have have begun our K-1 VISA process.

This website has helped us a LOT during the assembly of the whole I-129f application package, so for that you guys have our thanks!

We'll put up a timeline as soon as possible (and as soon as we figure out how to do it haha)

Though, I am from the Netherlands as well and if you need any answers throughout the process (packet 3/4, interview,etc) since I'm 4 months ahead of you, please let me know.

Thank you all for the warm welcome.

I already got "addicted" back when we had to assemble the whole package to send it off :-)

@Channah: Nice to see there are some fellow Dutch people taking this stip as well, especially a few months ahead of us so that we can compare the situation to yours, that's awesome!

I have filled in the Timeline as far as possible (which is eh... not far at all, just received notice through the email that the package has been received and that the NoA1 whould be sent back to us in about a week, so at least we know that have it!!!) but it doesn't show up under my posts like all of your Timelines do, any advice?

I am probably overlooking something in the settings section I guess where I am supposed to check/uncheck something.
